20 Years After the Chernobyl Accident

The Chernobyl Disaster [Pdf/ePub] eBook

20 Years After the Chernobyl Accident by E. B. Burlakova,Valeria I. Naidich Book Resume:

Radiobiology has made great steps forward in the last five years in the development of new mechanisms forming the basis of various radiation effects, specifically among the mechanisms of low rate irradiation by low doses. Investigations of radiation apoptosis, radiation hormesis, radioadaptive response, and by-stander effects have been intensively developed. Processes of premature ageing induced by irradiation are examined. All these questions are discussed here. The greatest part is devoted to assessments of the health of the population irradiated inhabiting the radionuclide-contaminated territories and people from other regions of the former USSR involved in the liquidation on the accident consequences.

Manual for Survival: A Chernobyl Guide to the Future

The Chernobyl Disaster [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Manual for Survival: A Chernobyl Guide to the Future by Kate Brown Book Resume:

A chilling exposé of the international effort to minimize the health and environmental consequences of nuclear radiation in the wake of Chernobyl. Dear Comrades! Since the accident at the Chernobyl power plant, there has been a detailed analysis of the radioactivity of the food and territory of your population point. The results show that living and working in your village will cause no harm to adults or children. So began a pamphlet issued by the Ukrainian Ministry of Health—which, despite its optimistic beginnings, went on to warn its readers against consuming local milk, berries, or mushrooms, or going into the surrounding forest. This was only one of many misleading bureaucratic manuals that, with apparent good intentions, seriously underestimated the far-reaching consequences of the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe. After 1991, international organizations from the Red Cross to Greenpeace sought to help the victims, yet found themselves stymied by post-Soviet political circumstances they did not understand. International diplomats and scientists allied to the nuclear industry evaded or denied the fact of a wide-scale public health disaster caused by radiation exposure. Efforts to spin the story about Chernobyl were largely successful; the official death toll ranges between thirty-one and fifty-four people. In reality, radiation exposure from the disaster caused between 35,000 and 150,000 deaths in Ukraine alone. No major international study tallied the damage, leaving Japanese leaders to repeat many of the same mistakes after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011. Drawing on a decade of archival research and on-the-ground interviews in Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus, Kate Brown unveils the full breadth of the devastation and the whitewash that followed. Her findings make clear the irreversible impact of man-made radioactivity on every living thing; and hauntingly, they force us to confront the untold legacy of decades of weapons-testing and other nuclear incidents, and the fact that we are emerging into a future for which the survival manual has yet to be written.

Chernobyl

The Chernobyl Disaster [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Chernobyl by Alexey V. Yablokov,Vassily B. Nesterenko,Alexey V. Nesterenko,Janette D. Sherman-Nevinger Book Resume:

This volume, written by leading authorities from Eastern Europe, outlines the history of the health and environmental consequences of the Chernobyl disaster. Although there has been much discussion concerning the impacts of nuclear accidents, and Chernobyl in particular, never before has there been a comprehensive presentation of all the available information concerning the health and environmental effects of the low dose radioactive contaminants that were emitted from the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. The official discussions emanating from the IAEA and associated UN agencies (e.g. the Chernobyl Forum reports) have largely downplayed or ignored many of the findings reported in the Eastern European scientific literature and as a consequence these reports have erred on the side of negative findings simply because much of what was known was not included in their assessments. This new book provides a complete and extensive summary of all known research, including that published in Russian and Ukrainian, and provides new insights to the likely long term health and environmental consequences of nuclear accidents.

Liquidator: The Chernobyl Story

The Chernobyl Disaster [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Liquidator: The Chernobyl Story by Belyakov Sergei Book Resume:

In the late April of 1986, the world learned about the quaint town in the Central Ukraine — Chernobyl. The largest nuclear catastrophe in the history of mankind, which affected the lives of millions and millions, had forced the USSR government to take unprecedented actions. One of them was the formation of a cleanup crew from the Army reservists. They were tasked with a titanic chore of cleaning the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant from radioactive debris after the explosion of Reactor #4. Sergei Belyakov, then a PhD scientist, volunteered to become one of the many 'nuclear jumpers' of that long-forgotten crew. This book sums up his recollections about that nuclear jumper stint. It is written not as a traditional memoir, but as an alloy of personal views and feelings, templated over the information about the Chernobyl disaster from the official sources of those days. It will give the Western readers a chilling sense of the magnitude of the event that brought down the almighty Soviet Union.

Chernobyl

The Chernobyl Disaster [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Chernobyl by Alla A. Yaroshinskaya Book Resume:

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.

Chernobyl Explosion

The Chernobyl Disaster [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Chernobyl Explosion by Michael Burgan Book Resume:

The long-term damage from an accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant more than 30 years ago is still unknown. When explosions ripped through the reactor in rural Ukraine, then part of the Soviet Union, they spewed huge amounts of radioactive material into the atmosphere and caused the worst nuclear disaster in history. About 10,000 people have died or will die because of their exposure to radiation, and experts worry about the children born to parents who were living near the disaster area. With international help, Ukraine has enclosed the damaged reactor, giving scientists time to figure out what the future holds.

The Chernobyl Disaster, April 26, 1986

The Chernobyl Disaster [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Chernobyl Disaster, April 26, 1986 by Paul Dowswell Book Resume:

On April 26, 1986, a huge explosion tore apart the Number 4 reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in the Soviet Union. As workers and firefighters struggled heroically to bring the blaze at the plant under control, the Soviet government issued public statements that tragically understated the scale of the disaster. How and why did this terrible accident occur? Why did the Soviet Union want to conceal what had really happened? Who were the people involved, and what happened to them? What was the impact of the Chernobyl disaster on the environment and on global attitudes towards nuclear power? How did it contribute to the breakdown of the Soviet Union itself?

Life Exposed

The Chernobyl Disaster [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Life Exposed by Adriana Petryna Book Resume:

On April 26, 1986, Unit Four of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor exploded in then Soviet Ukraine. More than 3.5 million people in Ukraine alone, not to mention many citizens of surrounding countries, are still suffering the effects. Life Exposed is the first book to comprehensively examine the vexed political, scientific, and social circumstances that followed the disaster. Tracing the story from an initial lack of disclosure to post-Soviet democratizing attempts to compensate sufferers, Adriana Petryna uses anthropological tools to take us into a world whose social realities are far more immediate and stark than those described by policymakers and scientists. She asks: What happens to politics when state officials fail to inform their fellow citizens of real threats to life? What are the moral and political consequences of remedies available in the wake of technological disasters? Through extensive research in state institutions, clinics, laboratories, and with affected families and workers of the so-called Zone, Petryna illustrates how the event and its aftermath have not only shaped the course of an independent nation but have made health a negotiated realm of entitlement. She tracks the emergence of a "biological citizenship" in which assaults on health become the coinage through which sufferers stake claims for biomedical resources, social equity, and human rights. Life Exposed provides an anthropological framework for understanding the politics of emergent democracies, the nature of citizenship claims, and everyday forms of survival as they are interwoven with the profound changes that accompanied the collapse of the Soviet Union.

La supplication

The Chernobyl Disaster [Pdf/ePub] eBook

La supplication by Svetlana Alexievitch Book Resume:

"Sur Tchernobyl, des dizaines d'ouvrages ont été écrits, des milliers de mètres de bandes vidéo tournées... Ce livre, cependant, parle non pas de Tchernobyl mais du monde de Tchernobyl dont nous ne connaissons presque rien, non pas de la catastrophe mais de ce qui a suivi, d'un monde nouveau et différent, pour lequel il n'y a pas de langage. " Trois années durant, j'ai voyagé et questionné des hommes et des femmes de générations, de destins, de tempéraments différents. Tchernobyl est leur monde. Il empoisonne tout autour d'eux, la terre, l'air, l'eau mais aussi tout en eux, la conscience, le temps, la vie intérieure. " Faire que ce que plusieurs racontent devienne l'Histoire : en voyageant, en cédant la parole à ces gens, j'ai souvent eu l'impression de noter le futur, notre futur. " Ainsi parle Svetlana Alexievitch de La Supplication. Tout comme l'oeuvre de Primo Levi sur Auschwitz ou celle d'Alexandre Soljenitsyne sur le Goulag, son livre nomme l'indicible en faisant entendre, pour la première fois, les voix suppliciées de Tchernobyl. Écrivain et journaliste biélorusse, dissidente soutenue par le Pen-Club et la Fondation Soros, rendue célèbre dans le monde entier par Les Cercueils de zinc, ouvrage mémorial sur la guerre d'Afghanistan, Svetlana Alexievitch a déjà reçu, en Allemagne, Le Prix du livre politique et Le Prix des Libraires pour La Supplication. Elle vient de recevoir le 8 octobre 2015 le Prix Nobel de littérature.
