"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From the Back Cover:

"Based on an extensive review of Soviet-era archives, [Red Atom] shows that nonmilitary use of nuclear power was like many areas of cold war competition: an avenue for the participants to go to illogical extremes. . . . Impressive in its sweep, and it provides essential details about an industry that has outlived its creators yet."--New York Times

"Could there be another Chernobyl? . . . Red Atom is both a history and a warning--and a bitter indictment of an industry that was once thought to be the 'radiant' path to the future."--Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists

About the Author:

Paul Josephson, Ph.D., a historian of science and technology, is currently a fellow at the Davis Center for Russian Studies at Harvard University. He is the author of Physics and Politics in Revolutionary Russia, and New Atlantis Revisited: The Siberian City of Science.
