Asbestos exposure and lawsuits have been in the news for many years now, with many people realizing that in years gone by they were inadvertently exposed to a deadly substance known as asbestos, which was used in a wide range of industries and in many different applications over the decades.

However, in the late 1970s the dangers of asbestos exposure became widely known, and many people have gone on to develop serious or deadly health problems stemming from this exposure. Exposure to airborne asbestos dust and fibers can result in a range of health problems, including the deadly asbestos related cancer known as mesothelioma. Many lawsuits have also been filed around the world in relation to this exposure.

Two British authors have now written and published a book outlining the history of asbestos use in Britain and the United States. The two authors, John McCulloch and Geoffrey Tweedale, introduced their book in the city of Rochdale, in the UK, which was the location of the former Turner and Newall Plant, which was the largest asbestos factory in the world.

The book is called Defending the Indefensible and has been published by the Oxford University Press. The book outlines details on asbestos use from the late 1800s until present day.
