Beth Gardiner's book "Choked: Life and Breath in the Age of Air Pollution" (University of Chicago Press), comes out in April. It is a global look at one of the world's most pressing health dangers: dirty air. Gardiner travels the world to tell this critically important story, taking readers from the halls of power in Washington and the diesel-fogged London streets she walks with her daughter to Poland’s coal heartland and India’s gasping capital. In a gripping narrative that’s alive with powerful voices and personalities, she exposes the political decisions and economic forces that have kept so many of us breathing dirty air. Gardiner, an American journalist based in London, has written for publications including the New York Times, the Guardian, National Geographic and Smithsonian, and she is a former longtime Associated Press reporter.
