Now Available – The Electric Wilderness, by Andrew Marino and Joel Ray. San Francisco Press, 1986; 120 pages; preface by Dr. Robert O. Becker; bibliography and index. ISBN 0-911302-55-7.
Written like a novel, The Electric Wilderness recounts the opening battle in the 25-year war over EMF effects. Told from the point of view of biophysicist Andrew Marino, the major scientific witness in a four-year New York State hearing on a 765-KV power line (1974-78), the book is a David-and-Goliath tale that provides important insights into the politics of science in the U.S. B. Blake Levitt, author of Electromagnetic Fields: A Consumer’s Guide, calls the book “a classic of its genre.”
