The Greenpeace Book of Nuclear Age

The Greenpeace Book of Nuclear Age

by JohnMay (Author)


After nearly 20 years monitoring events in the nuclear industry, Greenpeace has now produced an account of nuclear incidents and accidents, civil and military, since the creation of the atom bomb. The central chronolgy of events, backed by explanations of the technicalities, has a cumulative effect made even more powerful by an introductory essay which explores the nature of risk, command and control, official secrecy and public safety. The aim is not to spread doom and gloom. The question is much more one of the individual's right to know whether the nuclear industry is capable of providing a safe environment. John May contributed to Lee Durrell's State of the Ark and he has acted as consultant to environmental publications and projects.
