This collection of books chronicles 25 years of ongoing corporate crimes by two major multinational corporations (Union Carbide and Dow Chemicals). It reveals the evolving understanding of the meaning of the Bhopal, India chemical spill for understanding the danger to human rights of globalization. In its major Bhopal case study, “Clouds of Injustice”, Amnesty International’s main conclusion is the need to make Human Rights a key standard in today’s industrial globalization.

We wrote the books on “corporate personhood” before it became a household word! Apex Press dissects the corporate impact on human rights, democracy, the environment, technology and economic & social justice. Some of our books are classics of alternative thinking, untainted by today’s corporate free speech (greenwashing). Our books get blurbs from thinkers like Howard Zinn, Jim Hightower, Pete Seeger, Vandana Shiva, Amitai Etzioni, Maude Barlow, Paolo Freire, Noam Chomsky, Paul R. Ehrlich, among others. Our founding publisher Ward Morehouse also co-founder of POCLAD, (Program on Corporations, Law & Democracy), incubated and wrote some of the early books on corporate personhood.
