The Greenpeace Book of the Nuclear Age

Publication - 1 June, 1989
The Hidden History, the Human CostFrom the introduction: "This book will introduce you to the black briefcase in the red shack, take you on a helicopterride over a burning nuclear core, into a damaged reactor in which life-forms are breeding, and through a realm of black humour and mystical coincidence.Because the effects of radiation take decades to reveal themselves, almost all the stories in this book are current, even though some of them begin in the mid-1940s. In this context, information develops its own half-life - the amount of time it takes for official truth to leak out of the canisters in which it is contained."Note: This is an automated, and imperfect, scan of a paper document.
