The must-read “Challenging the Chip: Labor Rights and Environmental Justice in the Global Electronics Industry”, first published in 2006, is now released in a Chinese edition. The book is a diverse collection of 26 stories about the toxic impacts of electronics manufacturing on workers and communities around the world, and reveals that the people who suffer the highest consequences are largely poor, female, immigrant and minority.

Contributors include visionaries, advocates and scholars who not only document the devastating practices of electronics manufacturing, but also share how they have come together in their workplaces, communities and across borders to successfully shift how the high-tech industry does business.

However, Challenging the Chip goes beyond just challenging the dark side of electronics, it challenges the industry to use its incredible brain power and ingenuity to dazzle the world again with green technologies that are toxic-free and easy to recycle.

Since 2006, the global electronic industry and its countermovements have changed in certain aspects and scope. However, the industry is still growing at the expense of environmental justice and labour right. Therefore, the book is still very invaluable for readers.
