A handbook for scholars, students, policy makers, journalists, and peace and environmental activists, providing concise histories of the development of nuclear weapons programs of every declared and de-facto nuclear weapons power. The thorough documentation and analysis of Nuclear Wastelands brings to light governmental secrecy and outright deception that have camouflaged the damage done to the very people and lands the weapons were meant to safeguard.
“No future research into nuclear weapons will be credible unless it refers to this study.” Jonathan Steel, The Guardian (UK), August 9, 1995
