Vity effected land people and animalsI was a little concerned airst that I would not be able to Gaffer follow due to the nature of the subject and all the different players involved but that was not the case at all The author states that he has written this with no agenda attached I am not sure you can ever do that but still theacts are laid out or all to see and it is up to you to draw the conclusions on the world up to you to draw the conclusions on the world nuclear program It does not matter if you are pro anti or just do not know this book will make you think Does this show that nuclear is just too dangerous or that in the case of

that the were just not competent in the design and operation of a nuclear acility I had Lone Star Justice: The First Century of the Texas Rangers finished reading Alive by this author andelt that he did an amazing job capturing the details and telling the story With that I decided to read Ablaze to learn about the Chernobyl accident Ablaze was a ar tougher read The author did an excellent job providing the reader with a basic understanding of nuclear reactors and radiation This knowledge allows the reader to grasp the effects of the contaminationThe story told is ascinating rightening and concerning Yet it shows how in the midst of a crisis several parties stepped up to try and help It was interesting to see how there were so many concerned with their own self preservation in the party that no one wanted to take action when it was needed The author goes into great detail about the recovery efforts by all parties involved the suffering and tragic loss of those involved There is so much going on in this book that it is difficult to capture in a review Overall it was an excellent read If you have not read up Overall it was an excellent read If you have not read up know about this disaster I highly recommend reading this book You will learn about the nuclear race in the Soviet Union I did eel that the last part of the book was difficult to read That may have just been my own perception due to the author speaking about all the parties involved and having difficulty keeping track of all the Russian and Ukrainian names A Island of the Lost Horses (Dora and Friends) fascinating read Covers the history of the Soviet nuclear programme the accident itself and the aftermath The Soviet government is shown at its shoddy corrupt worst while Western journalists were little better using the accident as a cold war stick and causing panic What is most shocking is the treatment of the ordinary people They had little information when the accident occurred as those at the top wished to hide their culpability This book was definitely interesting I didn t know much about the Chernobyl accident One of myriends who is getting ready to go into the Peace Corps in Ukraine recommended the book to me What was most interesting to me is that so much of the aftermath of the accident was totally mishandled because of the government that was in place at the time Remember this still happened under the Soviet Union I wonder how much of the damage of the town and the sickness of the people could have been prevented or at least lessened had the government not been in the way I also thought it was interesting how the author lined up how the aftermath was carried out in alignment with glasnost Gorbachev s political push Summer Meditations for openess in the government something that definitely hadn t happened under. Available before theall of the Soviet Union Read's enthralling account is illed with acts of courage and also bumbling confus.

I wanted to know about both the technical aspects of the Chernobyl disaster and the human aspects in terms of how the meltdown occurred and how it was dealt with in the or less immediate aftermath The title of this book certainly suggested that it would it the bill but while parts of it were interesting I was disappointed overall First the technical side isn t explained very clearly and the author seemed not to have much interest in those details The actual test that resulted in the destruction of Unit Four is described rather briefly and confusingly I didn t even actual think that the whole event had been described until after the book moved on to the next part of the story Wait was that it The story as told here is about the social context of the event in terms of the late Soviet period and the aftermath during the successor states There are a lot of Slavic names loating around but you don t get a personal eeling about a great deal of them so the story didn t have much emotional appealThe author is actually a novelist but somehow I didn t get a novel like eeling rom the Book It Didn T Have It didn t have clear ocus and the last third or so of it is about the later political repercussions which didn t really blaze even in a metaphorical sense The book sort of peters out at the end and the actual ending didn t seem very satisfying to me The emphasis of the plot line often seemed ill advised to me Some things of comparatively little importance are covered in great detail eg some American doctor who has a minor role in treating the immediate victims while much significant ones are treated cursorily eg the building of the sarcophagus Operation Iceberg : The Invasion and Conquest of Okinawa in World War II for the remains of the reactors get thrown up in a page without any trouble at all While I came away better informed about the overall course of events I m still not entirely clear about what went wrong or why According to Soviet authorities the Chernobyl accident claimed only 31 lives Piers Paul Read cites a projection that Chernobyl will ultimately claim victims than did World War II Twenty million Soviets were killed during World War II After reading this detailed look about nuclear radiation and Soviet truth dodging I m thinking the projection may be closer to the truthAnother interesting comparative statisticrom the book Three Mile Island released 15 curies of radioactive Iodine 131 into the atmosphere Chernobyl released 50000000 curies according to the Soviet Union According to the US National Argonne Laboratory Chernobyl released 3000000000 curies According to the Union of Concerned Scientists it was approximately 9000000000 curies This book is split into three parts The Arrows of the Night: Ahmad Chalabi's Long Journey to Triumph in Iraq first looking at how the Russians began trying to keep up with the US by building a nuclear bomb and then using that technologyor peaceful purposes by splitting the atom mass it could be converted to energy and the heat generated could be converted into electrical power The second part looks at the construction of Chernobyl itself and giving an overview of the leading Michelin Green Guide Normandy figures that worked there the explosion of the reactor the evacuation and then how the wind circulated that radioactivity to other countries Also looks at the trial which is held in a typically Russian way The third part is looking at how that radioacti.
