FALLOUT FROM FUKUSHIMA, by Richard Broinowski. Scribe Publications, 2012, 273 pp., A$27.95 (paperback)

Most books about the nuclear reactor accident of Fukushima No. 1 are very opinionated. Given the many repercussions of the disaster, it is not surprising that people find it difficult to discuss in a disinterested way, sine ira et studio.

The book under review here is no exception. Its author is a retired Australian diplomat who some time ago decided to devote himself to awakening the world to the dangers of nuclear power and to observing Australia's nuclear ambitions.
