Summary "'It finally dawned on us. The government was unreliable. Politicians and bureaucrats were unreliable. The media was untrustworthy. The brutal reality hit us that we had to protect ourselves ... otherwise bury our heads in the sand and give up althogether.' Written in the immediate aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake and accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station of March 2011, Koichi Hasegawa presents a compelling account of the events of 3/11 against the backdrop of the history and geopolitics of the nuclear industry worldwide. He argues passionately for denuclearization and is highly critical of the Japanese Governmnet in terms of its response to the Fukushima nuclear disaster."--Back cover
