Voices From Chernobyl ✍ Ingrid Storholmen
📝Voices From Chernobyl Detail : Winner of the Sult Prize 2010 Nominated for the 2009 Critics' Prize Nominated for the 2009 Brage Award Nominated for the 2009 Youth Critics' Prize Chernobyl, 26 April 1986. Things were ruined overnight in that quiet town of Ukraine. An experiment to produce electricity from the residual energy in the steam generator of Reactor Four at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station went horribly wrong, bringing on an explosion that blew away the reactor's roof and set afire the graphite in its core. The blaze lasted several days, casting huge quantities of radioactivity a thousand metres up into the atmosphere. And it was a long time before the local people were evacuated. This is the story of what came after. What happened to the people of Chernobyl? How did innocuous atoms -which make all things, even us - connive to unleash a destruction so vicious that there was little left to be salvaged? Did the world learn any lessons from the tragedy? Told in the voices of many victims, this elegiac novel recounts how their bodies, lives and loves, realities and memories were distorted forever, and how the very air around them was irrevocably changed.

Chernobyl Explosion ✍ Michael Burgan
📝Chernobyl Explosion Detail : The long-term damage from an accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant more than 30 years ago is still unknown. When explosions ripped through the reactor in rural Ukraine, then part of the Soviet Union, they spewed huge amounts of radioactive material into the atmosphere and caused the worst nuclear disaster in history. About 10,000 people have died or will die because of their exposure to radiation, and experts worry about the children born to parents who were living near the disaster area. With international help, Ukraine has enclosed the damaged reactor, giving scientists time to figure out what the future holds.
📝Svetlana Aleksievich s Voices from Chernobyl Between an Oral History and a Death Lament Detail : ABSTRACT: As in the rest of her Nobel Prize-winning prose, in Voices from Chernobyl, Svetlana Aleksievich uses oral history to create polyphonic reflections on an unprecedented event in Soviet history. The nature and structure of this narrative, however, stand out among Aleksievich's other works, and resemble a continuous, collective mourning, which renders the book comparable in genre to the Slavic death lament. The analysis of Aleksievich's Chornobyl' narrative through the lens of the Slavic death lament helps determine the text's compositional structure, performative effects, and central imagery, demonstrating the book's reliance on literary devices.
Chernobyl Murders ✍ Michael Beres
📝Chernobyl Murders Detail : In a western Ukraine wine cellar in 1985, Chernobyl engineer Mihaly Horvath discloses the unnecessary risks associated with the power plant to his brother, Kiev Militia detective Lazlo. Spawned by a desire to protect his family, Lazlo investigates—irritating his superiors, drawing the attention of a CIA operative, raising the hackles of an old KGB major, and ultimately discovering his brother’s secret affair with a Chernobyl technician, Juli Popovics. After the explosion, the Ukraine is not only blanketed with deadly radiation, but also becomes a killing ground involving pre-perestroika factions in disarray, a Soviet government on its last legs, and madmen hungry for power. With a poisoned environment at their backs and a killer snapping at their heels, Lazlo and Juli flee for their lives—and their love—in this engrossing political thriller.
Ardenas 1944 ✍ Antony Beevor
📝Ardenas 1944 Detail : El sábado 16 de diciembre de 1944 Hitler inició su “última jugada” en los bosques nevados de las Ardenas. Su intención era realizar un ataque por sorpresa que, avanzando hacia Amberes, dividiese los ejércitos aliados e hiciese posible infligirles una severa derrota: un nuevo Dunquerque que cambiase el curso de una guerra que había llegado a una situación angustiosa, con los ejércitos soviéticos avanzando en suelo alemán. El ataque, en el que intervendrían dos ejércitos blindados, se complementaba con la actuación en la retaguardia de un comando de soldados alemanes, con uniformes y vehículos norteamericanos. Como hiciera en Stalingrado, Beevor consigue aquí combinar una visión épica de la que fue la mayor batalla de la guerra en el frente occidental –una batalla librada en condiciones extremas, que llegó a implicar a un millón de hombres y en la que los dos bandos cometieron crímenes brutales- con una aproximación directa al heroísmo, el miedo y el sufrimiento de los seres humanos.
Button Up ✍ Dr. Ronald A. Hardert
📝Button Up Detail : This book calls into question building additional nuclear weapons and nuclear power plants given the attendant health problems, mainly childhood leukemia, thyroid cancer, breast and testicular cancer. Our inquiry is based on our continuing involvement in the peace and social justice movements and researching oil, chemical, and nuclear disasters. New findings support the social power theories of C. Wright Mills, Michel Foucault, and Jurgen Habermas. Data analyzed in our book are based on the experiences of ordinary people attempting to deal with nuclear secrecy and deception.
