Présentation de l'éditeur

Long before the tragedy of the 2011 nuclear disasters in Japan, the nuclear reactor at Chernobyl experienced an explosion, meltdown, fire, and massive release of radioactivity. Twenty-five years later, we still know very little about the event and its aftermath. Few of the professional papers describing the aftereffects of the disaster have been translated from Russian into English or distributed in the West. This is now remedied, with the publication of this definitive volume, based on original sources, and originally published in Russian.

Alla A. Yaroshinskaya describes the human side of the disaster, with firsthand accounts by those who lived through the world’s worst public health crisis. Chernobyl: Crime without Punishment is a unique account of events by a reporter who defied the Soviet bureaucracy. The author presents an accurate historical record, with quotations from all the major players in the Chernobyl drama. It also provides unique insight into the final stages of Soviet communism.

Yaroshinskaya describes actions after the disaster: how authorities built a new city for Chernobyl residents but placed it in a highly polluted area. She also details the actions of the nuclear lobby inside and outside the former Soviet Union.

Bringing the book into the twenty-first century, the author reviews the latest medical data on Chernobyl people’s health from the affected countries and from independent investigations; and states why there has been no trial of top officials who covered up Chernobyl and its disastrous consequences.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Lessons for Fukushima in the history of Chernobyl victims 30 janvier 2012
Par Dennis Riches - Publié sur
The Chernobyl catastrophe was largely forgotten and dismissed by the world as soon as the smoldering mess was contained in the famous sarcophagus, but those who have paid attention to the issue since then have been aware of the strangely divergent views of the human toll of the disaster. One view claims that a million people have died, and millions more have had their health ruined, while the other side says there was only a small increase in cancer deaths and "generally positive prospects for the future health of most individuals should prevail." (UNSCEAR report, 2008)
If anyone still doubts the more pessimistic view, they need only read the recently published Chernobyl: Crime Without Punishment to lay the question to rest. This is a translation of a book written by Ukrainian journalist, politician and winner of the 1992 Right Livelihood Award, Alla A. Yaroshinskaya. In this powerful condemnation of injustices suffered by Chernobyl victims for the past quarter century, the author provides volumes of evidence about their suffering - and it is the only kind of evidence we should really need; that is, the stories of the victims and witnesses that reveal the health effects of the world's worst radiological catastrophe. Scientists can debate among themselves whether small amounts of radiation stimulate genetic repair, or make positive changes to chromosome telomeres, but anyone who chooses to "remember his humanity, and forget the rest," (to quote the famous line on this topic pronounced by Albert Einstein and Bertrand Russell) will be convinced by the corroborating evidence given by millions of victims. Doubting these accounts has started to sound a little like someone who would say that something nasty is rumored to have occurred in Germany in the 1940s, but more research is needed. Ms. Yaroshinskaya's writing demonstrates that it is time to get over the senseless false controversy about the effects of nuclear accidents and look squarely in the eyes of people affected.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The same scenario repeated with Fukushima. 18 mai 2013
Par Mark E. Smith - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Residents in unsafe areas weren't helped to relocate, doctors were dissuaded from diagnosing radiation illness, and the corporate owners along with the government cast a dome of secrecy over everything. A pity that their nuclear power plant domes had never been so sturdy.

As nuclear power plants all over the globe begin to fail due to aging parts and increasingly severe weather phenomena, it might be a good idea to know what to expect. Yaroshinskaya is a diligent reporter and although it sometimes took decades, gained access to the documents incriminating the highest officials, who, as the title states, remain unpunished. Nice job, to make billions of dollars in profit by killing millions of innocent people and to have total impunity.

This book is history, but unfortunately for many of us, it is also prophecy. Some countries have decided to abandon nuclear power, but many capitalist countries are more concerned with profits than with people, so the bottom line is that they aren't likely to shut down dangerous and failing nuclear power plants before they melt down. And that, of course, is much too late.
