Asbestos House

Gideon Haigh
Reconstructed from hundreds of hours of interviews and thousands of pages of documentation, this reference focuses on one of Austalia's oldest and proudest corporations, Hardie, retelling the story of one of the worst industrial poisons of the 20th century, asbestos. This compelling narrative relates the frantic financial engineering in 2001, during which Hardie cut adrift its liabilities to sufferers of asbestos-related disease, the public and political odium that followed, and the extraordinary deal that resulted.
