Synopsis: This revised edition is part of a series which examines important subjects of concern in the world today, in this case nuclear safety. Photographs as well as textual changes have been made to reflect the many changes that have taken place since the orignal publication of the book.

From School Library Journal: Grade 4-7 Tackling the topic of nuclear power once again, Hawkes concentrates this time on the safety issue with his focus on the April 1986 Chernobyl explosion. After introducing the reasons behind the development of nuclear power plants, how nuclear power is generated, and the extent of its use worldwide, the author discusses the problems that radiation and waste material disposal present, the failures at Chernobyl and Three Mile Island, and the dangers presented by fires and meltdowns. An especially valuable passage compares the hazards of nuclear energy with those of fossil fuels, concluding that while nuclear power has so far cost few lives in comparison with fossil fuels (e.g., mining accidents), the potential destruction of a large nuclear disaster is overwhelming. This well-illustrated book includes diagrams showing how a nuclear reactor works and photos of the damaged Chernobyl plant in addition to other attractive and informative illustrative material. Hawkes presents an unbiased introduction to both sides of the nuclear debate. His even-keeled approach and his coverage of Chernobyl make Nuclear Safety a good choice for both school and public libraries. Jeffrey A. French, Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library
