Short Desription

For the first time, the sad story of America's uranium miners and the duplicity of our government is revealed. This expert study examines, in microcosm, the political, legal, social, medical, engineering, and ethical problems that emerged when American leaders developed a nuclear arsenal to contain the USSR without considering the cost this could have on innocent lives. Ball provides the historical background for federal policies, medical reports, and legal battles that ensued leading up to the compensatory legislation in 1990. An apendix offers a federal report about three decades of radiation experiences on U.S. citizens. A bibliography defines primary and secondary source material of note.
