This book is a description of the "culture" of the nuclear complex at Hanford, Washington, based on three visits the author made between 1979 and 1981. It includes interviews with now-retired workers who produced plutonium at Hanford during World War II as well as with younger Washington Public Power Supply System construction workers. Useful for its description of life at a nuclear facility, Loeb's account may be of interest to both public and academic librariesespecially since Hanford has recently been in the news. (This book was initially scheduled for publication several years ago but was not released.) Elizabeth K. Tom, formerly with Purdue Univ. Lib., W. Lafayette, Ind.
