CITYBloomington, IN

The author of this book chronicles the negative aspects of nuclear weapons and civilian nuclear power from the Trinity test in 1945 to the end of the Cold War in 1992. Chapters provide narratives on the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the testing of nuclear weapons by the United States, effects of radiation and radioactive fallout on humans, nuclear reactor accidents, and accidents involving transportation, storage, and handling of nuclear materials including nuclear waste. A chapter also lists acts of war against nuclear facilities. The final chapter concludes that the three most potentially devastating nuclear issues are proliferation of nuclear weapons, nuclear waste management, and acts of war on nuclear facilities. Each chapter includes a bibliography.
