When disaster struck on the night of 3rd December 1984, it took a sleeping Bhopal by surprise – it woke thousands to their death, maimed thousands more for life. But the poison gas that poured out of the Union Carbide factory was also a wake-up call to the world, demanding the question: How could such an accident happen? The second book in the In Focus series, this is the story of that horrific night and its aftermath. Based on detailed research, it examines the causes, gives a background and traces the fallout – scientific, medical, legal and, most importantly, human – of the world's worst-ever industrial disaster. In the process, it highlights several issues: the responsibilities of science and technology, concerns towards safety, human rights and attitudes of the powerful.
