About this book

Provides concise histories of the development of nuclear weapons programmes of every declared or de facto nuclear weapons powers, as well as detailed surveys of the environmental effects of this development, both in these countries and in non-nuclear nations involved in nuclear weapons testing and uranium mining.

[Nuclear Wastelands"] meticulously gathers together every piece of public information about the nuclear cycle, some of it leaked, some dragged out thanks to court cases, some published in specialist commissions but little noticed at the time. No future research into nuclear weapons will be credible unless it refers to this study."--Jonathan Steele, "The Guardian"
