Both radiation and radiophobia are invisible, but both are capable of having a profound impact on modern society. Intended for readers without any background in the subject, you will be surprised at how surprising and compelling the history of nuclear power is. Extremely well-researched, no other book delves so deeply into how we react to radiation and nuclear power. Chernobyl, Fukushima, and even Three Mile Island became larger-than-life incidents and each acquired their own mythology. Despite being an essential part of the natural environment, radiation is rarely well understood. There is a special, and indeed unique fear that we apply not only to nuclear weapons but also nuclear power. Profound, disquieting and all encompassing, this anxiety has affected our ability to think objectively about energy and air pollution.
