As much personal journal as investigative journalism, this second edition traces the worsening developments at Fukushima Daiichi during the first year following the nuclear disaster. Often poetic in tone and philosophic in scope, this day-to-day reportage is peppered with the authora??s reflections and dramatic monologues as she investigates the publica??s willing blindness toward the nuclear power industrya??s disregard for public safety in the pursuit of profit. The book offers a unique perspective and attempts to come to terms with Fukushimaa??s catastrophic consequences on the planet.
