Kathy Haeg, Executive Assistant for the Office of Academic Affairs, recommends Who Killed Karen Silkwood? and The Killing of Karen Silkwood by Howard Kohn and Richard Rashke.
"Karen Silkwood was a whistle blower killed on her way to meet a New York Times reporter. She was bringing documents proving her employer was manufacturing defective nuclear fuel rods. Karen never arrived. These books tell Karen’s story and the story of the people who fought for justice in this case. Because of their search for the truth, we received answers to the questions of who killed Karen Silkwood and why.I chose these books because truth matters and because my life was changed through my work with the extraordinary attorneys and activists at the Christic Institute in Washington D.C."
