About the Author

Richard S. Newman is Professor of History at Rochester Institute of Technology. A native of Buffalo, New York, he is the author and/or editor of five previous books on abolitionism, African American history, and environmentalism, including The Palgrave Environmental Reader and Freedom's Prophet: Bishop Richard Allen, the AME Church, and the Black Founding Fathers. For fifteen years, he taught environmental history at Rochester Institute of Technology.


Richard S. Newman, in his Love Canal: A Toxic History from Colonial Times to the Present, manages to retell the story in a way that is fresh and imbues Love Canal, as place and symbol, with new importance for understanding the history of citizen activism, environmentalism, and environmental regulation in the United States ... essential reading. * Cody Ferguson, Environmental History * Newman's narrative is more complete than any that has come before. He makes excellent use of rich source material * David Stradling, American Historical Review *
