What's it about?

This collection takes a closer look at nuclear weapons of mass destruction and their long-term legacy. By examining catastrophic historical events and their enduring physical and psychological effects on their victims, it debunks political tales of nuclear power's safety and reliability, and shows us that we might just be one tiny accident or a natural disaster away from losing our lives, cities, and the promise of a future.
