Plokhy tells the tale of the six nuclear disasters that shook the world: Bikini Atoll, Kyshtym, Windscale, Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima. Based on wide-ranging research and witness testimony, he traces the arc of each crisis, exploring the confused decision-making on the ground and the panicked responses of governments to contain the crises and cover up the scale of each catastrophe. From the author of 'Chernobyl: History of a Tragedy' and winner of the Baillie Gifford award.
