Description:

BRAND NEW Hardcover - Russian journalist Yaroshinskaya has prepared an extensive, thorough account of the tragedy at Chernobyl. She documents a series of misinformation campaigns by the Soviet government to avoid responsibility and deny any wrongdoing in the disaster. . . . Millions of people over decades have been lobbying for justice, compensation, and recognition for the people who have suffered as a result of Chernobyl. The disaster still poisons the region. The book serves as both a condemnation of nuclear power and an expos of government duplicity. . . . Highly recommended.D.

Synopsis:

Long before the tragedy of the 2011 nuclear disasters in Japan, the nuclear reactor at Chernobyl experienced an explosion, meltdown, fire, and massive release of radioactivity. Twenty-five years later, we still know very little about the event and its aftermath. Few of the professional papers describing the aftereffects of the disaster have been translated from Russian into English or distributed in the West. This is now remedied, with the publication of this definitive volume, based on original sources, and originally published in Russian.

Alla A. Yaroshinskaya describes the human side of the disaster, with firsthand accounts by those who lived through the world's worst public health crisis. Chernobyl: Crime without Punishment is a unique account of events by a reporter who defied the Soviet bureaucracy. The author presents an accurate historical record, with quotations from all the major players in the Chernobyl drama. It also provides unique insight into the final stages of Soviet communism.

Yaroshinskaya describes actions after the disaster: how authorities built a new city for Chernobyl residents but placed it in a highly polluted area. She also details the actions of the nuclear lobby inside and outside the former Soviet Union.

Bringing the book into the twenty-first century, the author reviews the latest medical data on Chernobyl people's health from the affected countries and from independent investigations; and states why there has been no trial of top officials who covered up Chernobyl and its disastrous consequences.

About the Author:

Alla A. Yaroshinskaya is a Russian journalist and winner of the Right Livelihood Award. She was also a member of the Ecology and Glasnost Committees of the Supreme Soviet and advisor to former Russian president Boris Yeltsin. She is the author of numerous books in Russian and Chernobyl: The Forbidden Truth (in English). This book has been edited by Rosalie Bertell and Lynn Howard Ehrle, translated from the Russian by Sergei Roy.
