Each volume of Perspectives On Modern World History offers a fresh look - from multiple perspectives - at momentous events in world history. This volume introduces and provides a brief overview of major factors that contributed to the nuclear power accident in the Russian city of Chernobyl. Each volume opens with background information - including primary source material - covering the periods leading up to, during and after the event. Then, each volume offers an in-depth, multinational perspective on the controversies surrounding the event and the current implications or long-lasting effects. Each volume concludes with first-person narratives from people who lived through or were directly impacted by the event. Essays are compiled from a variety of sources and are carefully edited and introduced to provide context for readers unfamiliar with the historical event.

Reviews

"...eye-opening, cautionary title about a subject that remains urgently relevant to today's headlines."--Booklist, April 2010

— Gillian Engberg

"This volume contains a wealth of relevant information representing many viewpoints of the current discussions surrounding the 1986 disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine, which led to an official death toll of 56 people. Each article, skillfully drawn from uultinational secondary sources, provides researchers with an admirable base for reports. Along the way, a number of well-chosen, colorful photos and sidebars on related topics personalize what is a compelling account of the Soviet environmental and human tragedy." --School Library Journal, April 2010
