About the Author:

Jane Dibblin has written for numerous publications including the New Statesman, The Nation, The Observer, and Spare Rib. She was deputy editor of the Journal of European Nuclear Disarmament, and has long been active in both the women's movement and the peace movement. A special interest in the Pacific led her to the Marshall Islands for this, her first book.

From Library Journal:

Dibblin, a British journalist with a clear antinuclear agenda, presents a most disturbing portrait of the effects of nuclear weapons testing on the people of Micronesia. Beginning with the explosion of nuclear bombs on the islands in 1946, the policies of the United States have transformed a people who were once happy, healthy, and economically self-sufficient into a people who are angry, unhealthy, living in near-poverty, and economically dependent on the United States. The book is reasonably well-documented, particularly with its many first-person accounts from Micronesian women, and while there are other books which treat portions of this subject, such as Warfare in a Fragile World: Military Impact on the Human Environment (Stockholm International Peace Research Inst., 1980), no other work covers this aspect of nuclear weapons testing as comprehensively. Recommended for subject collections.
