Review: The Poisoned City: Flint's Water and the American Urban Tragedy

The Poisoned City: Flint's Water and the American Urban Tragedy by Anna Clark
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Anna Clark's reportorial account of the Flint Water Crisis is a reminder that some of the biggest problems we face in America - systemic racism, self-serving politicians, ineffectual government agencies less interested in serving the public need then in performing CYA - are not just confined to Washington D.C. Her emphasis on the importance of community organizing in overcoming these pressures to force the crisis into the light so it could be resolved is very timely. A short(ish) book and a quick read, and one well worth your time.
