First published in 1978, Helen Caldicott’s Nuclear Madness became an instant classic on the dangers of nuclear power. In the intervening years much has changed – the Cold War is over, nuclear arms production has decreased, and there has been a marked growth in environmental awareness. But the nuclear genie has not been forced back into the bottle. The disaster at Chernobyl and the “incidents” at other plants around the world have disproven the image of “safe” nuclear power. Nuclear waste dumping has further poisoned our environment, and developing nuclear technology in the Third World poses still further risks.

In this completely revised, updated, and expanded edition, Dr. Caldicott defines the dangers of this madness – including the insidious influence of the nuclear power industry and the American government's complicity in medical "experiments" using nuclear material – and calls on us to accept the moral challenge to fight against it, both for our own sake and for that of future generations.


“Helen Caldicott has been my inspiration to speak out.”
-- Meryl Streep
