About this title


Shows nuclear weapons test sites in Nevada, Washington, and the Marshall Islands, discussing each site and remaining radiation levels

From Library Journal:

Since 1945, over 700 nuclear tests have taken place on American soil alone. Through carefully composed color photographs, Goin documents the lasting damage from nuclear explosions at several sites. The antithesis of classic landscapes, these photographs present haunted landscapes understandably devoid of habitation, with colors leached out and the land permanently laid waste. Viewers thus feel the need to step lightly; there is a tendency to hold one's breath. The photographs are accompanied by an informative and balanced text, and each is infused with the ghost of what this land once was. This extremely important book should be given a highly visible place in school, public, and academic libraries.
