Hiroshima-75

Nuclear Issues in Global Contexts

Edited by Aya Fujiwara and David R. Marples

ibidem Press

75 years after the United States dropped the world’s first atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, a group of international scholars offers new perspectives on this event and the history, development, and portrayal of the utilization of atomic energy: in military and civilian industries, civil nuclear power, literature and film, and the contemporary world. What lessons have we learned since the end of the Second World War? Can we avoid disasters such as Chernobyl and Fukushima? Have we learned to live with man-made nuclear power in the 21st century?
The public needs authentic information on the meaning of Hiroshima, and how the whole world continues to be held hostage to nuclear weapons. That valuable information is provided here. Hon. Douglas Roche, O.C., Former Canadian Ambassador for Disarmament
