Black Tide: the Devastating Impact of the Gulf Oil Spill.
A searing look at the human face of BP's disaster in the Gulf.

"Masterfully reported." -- Ms. Magazine

"Both engaging and informative." -- Mother Jones

It is the largest oil disaster in American history, and it could happen again. It is more than a story of ruined beaches, dead wildlife, chemical dispersants, corporate spin, political machinations, and financial fallout. It is a riveting human drama filled with people whose lives will forever be defined as “before” and “after” the Gulf oil disaster. Black Tide is the only book to tell this story through the perspective of people on all sides of the catastrophe, from those who lost their lives, loved ones, and livelihoods to those who made the policies that set the devastating event in motion, those who cut the corners that put corporate profits over people and the environment, and those who have committed their lives to ensuring that such an event is never repeated.

“We cannot allow the BP disaster to be pushed from public view the way BP used chemical dispersants to hide the oil. These remarkable stories—of loss, heroism, and culpability—are a vivid reminder that this catastrophe will be with us for decades, and that we have not yet made the changes necessary to prevent destruction in the future.”

--Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism

 “Black Tide is extremely well researched, reasoned and written. The story of the Macondo well disaster has important ramifications for our future. Antonia Juhasz helps us understand what this disaster can mean to present and future generations.”

--Dr. Robert Bea, Deepwater Horizon Study Group

 "It's hard to imagine a better person to turn loose on this epochal disaster than Antonia Juhasz, with her compassionate heart, vivid prose, and rich expertise in both oil and economic policy. Black Tide covers everything from the details of the oil-smeared beaches and the drilling rig's control room to the big picture of the mega oil corporations and the governments they push around, but it's not just a book about disaster: it's a series of encounters with real people, from oceanographers to oyster shuckers, striving to make things right. Juhasz tells this story as no one else could. Black Tide is riveting, infuriating, and incredibly important to understand the places, politics, and people who survived the Gulf oil disaster."

--Rebecca Solint, author of A Paradise Built in Hell: The Extraordinary Communities that Arise in Disaster.

Report Cover
The True Cost of Chevron: An Alternative Annual Report

Chevron's 2008 annual report is a glossy celebration of the company's most profitable year in its history and one in which company CEO David O’Reilly became the 15th highest paid U.S. CEO, with nearly $50 million in total 2008 compensation. What Chevron's annual report does not tell its shareholders is the true cost paid for those financial returns, or the global movement gaining voice and strength against Chevron's abuses. Thus, the communities and their allies who bear the consequences of those operations released their own Alternative Annual Report.
