    One thought on “The Legacy of Chernobyl”

    1. The upcoming 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster on April, 26, 2011, as well as the current concern regarding the damage at the Fukushima Dai ichi nuclear power complex in Japan, compelled me to go back to read this book At the time that it was written in 1989, it was the first book by a Russian insider on the subject A geneticist, Medvedev was already a famous scientific muckraker, having exposed a long secret nuclear accident in the Ural Mountains Although we now know much about Cherno [...]
