Book: Environmental Hazards of War: Releasing Dangerous Forces in an Industrial World

High levels of development and industrialization make widespread devastation increasingly likely as the result of war damage to civilian facilities such as nuclear power plants, chemical plants, and dams. The devastation is not from the weapons alone but from the release - whether intentional or inadvertent - of radioactive or toxic chemicals or impounded waters. Drawing from a wide range of expert contributors from countries East, West and neutral, the books concludes with an examination of the legal, political, and related cultural approaches to mitigate the dangers.
