520    When the people of Flint, Michigan, turned on their 
       faucets in April 2014, the water pouring out was poisoned 
       with lead and other toxins. Through a series of disastrous
       decisions, the state government had switched the city’s 
       water to a source that corroded Flint’s aging lead pipes. 
       Complaints about the foul-smelling water were dismissed: 
       the residents of Flint—a largely poor African American 
       city of about 100,000 people—were not seen as credible, 
       even in matters of their own lives.  It took 18 months of 
       activism and a band of dogged outsiders to force the state
       to admit that the water was poisonous. But this was only 
       after 12 people died and Flint's children suffered 
       irreparable harm. The long battle for accountability and a
       humane response to this man-made disaster have only just 
       begun.  In the first full-length account of this epic 
       failure, The Poisoned City recounts the gripping story of 
       Flint’s poisoned water through the people who caused it, 
       suffered from it, and exposed it. It is a chronicle of one
       town, but could also be about any American city, all made 
       precarious by the neglect of infrastructure and the 
       erosion of democratic decision-making. Cities like Flint 
       are set up to fail—and for the people who live and work in
       them, the consequences may be mortal.
