The Bhopal Library:

Corporate Crimes and Global Activism

Bhopal Reader - Bhopal Library, Corporate Crimes and Global Activism

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. The  failure to clean up the site to this day has  created yet new victims of polluted water aquifers of lethal chemicals leaking into the soil. To date no legal or corporate authority has compelled the corporation to  correct these human rights violations. More >

Books to Build Real, Sustainable Democracy


We wrote the books on “corporate person hood” 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.
