On the morning of 26 April 1986 Europe witnessed the worst nuclear disaster in history- the explosion of a reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Soviet Ukraine. The outburst put the world on the brink of nuclear annihilation. In the end, less than five percent of the reactor's fuel escaped, but that was enough to contaminate over half of Europe with radioactive fallout. In Chernobyl, Serhii Plokhy recreates these events in all of their drama, telling the stories of the firefighters, scientists, engineers, workers, soldiers, and policemen who found themselves caught in a nuclear Armageddon and succeeded in doing the seemingly impossible- extinguishing the nuclear inferno and putting the reactor to sleep. While it is clear that the immediate cause of the accident was a turbine test gone wrong, Plokhy shows how the deeper roots of Chernobyl lay in the nature of the Soviet political system and the flaws of its nuclear industry. A little more than five years later, the Soviet Union would fall apart, destroyed from within by its unsustainable communist ideology and the dysfunctional managerial and economic systems laid bare in the wake of the disaster. A poignant, fast paced account of the drama of heroes, perpetrators, and victims, Chernobylis the definitive history of the world's worst nuclear disaster.… (lisätietoja)

Esta é a história da central nuclear de Chernobyl desde a sua construção à sua desativação. Em 26 de abril de 1986, às 13:23, um reator da Usina Nuclear de Chernobyl, na Ucrânia soviética, explodiu. Enquanto as autoridades tentavam entender o que havia acontecido, trabalhadores, engenheiros, bombeiros e aqueles que viviam na área foram abandonados ao seu destino. A explosão colocou o mundo à beira da aniquilação nuclear, contaminando mais da metade da Europa com a precipitação radioativa.

Excellent, readable history of the personalities, science, and politics of the catastrophe involving both the Soviet Union and Ukraine by a Ukranian with mostly Ukrainian sources. ( )

Phenomenal book showing just how close Europe came to becoming completely uninhabitable through a catastrophic combination of cost-cutting, maladministration, bad communication and bureaucracy. Saving the situation, real heroes stepped into the breach and through luck and sacrifice, saved much of the planet from man-made destruction. The story is well told and easy to follow, despite the many characters and institutions involved. ( )

This is a really interesting look into the Chernobyl catastrophe. I've read more technical analyses of what happened; this book is more of a sociological / political look into how the accident was able to occur. Between the Soviet system that rewarded deadlines more than quality work, and the system of silence that covered up anything that wasn't the best of news, I suppose it's a miracle that there was only ONE Chernobyl-sized accident.

What I found most interesting was that the other three reactors remained online for such a long time. I was always under the assumption that they shut down all four after the one reactor melted down. So I appreciated that this book included the analysis of Ukrainian independence and their need for the energy that the other three reactors were producing. ( )

I can still vividly remember the time we in the West first heard about a nuclear accident behind the Iron Curtain. Reports were appearing about a massive rise in radiation with denials from European states and a collective finger pointing to an accidental release somewhere in the USSR. At the height of the cold war, very little was confirmed on denied by the Soviets, but pressure built on the Kremlin and they began to reveal details of just what had happened in the Ukraine. It wasn’t an accidental release of a small amount of radiation that flowed across northern Europe, rather it was the aftermath of a reactor exploding at the Chernobyl nuclear plant.

And it could have been so much worse.

What exactly happened on that fateful night of 26 April 1986 when at 1.23am the reactor exploded has never been fully known. The Soviets didn’t even release any details for a few days until pressure from around the world with the overwhelming evidence meant that they couldn’t do anything else but reveal the problem. Even then details were still sketchy and cold hard facts were very rare, not helped by the endemic secrecy and paranoia of the USSR. Slowly though, the facts surfaced and it was realised just how close we were to a European wide environmental catastrophe.

What actually happened all those years ago though? Thankfully Serhii Plokhy has been trawling the recently opened archives in search of the truth, finding out who was blamed and who actually was a fault for the disaster. He covers the flaws in the design or the reactor and the powerplay between the Kremlin and KGB as some scientists tried to tell the truth to the world. We hear the stories of those who gave their lives to stop it getting any worse and about the families who had almost no notice before they were told to leave the rapidly created exclusion zone.

At times it reads like a thriller, in particular, the event of that night and the schemes that they were using to contain the radiation and stop further explosions. Other time the narrative slows as you follow the convoluted and inept officials who seem more concerned with ensuring their arses were covered. He takes a wider look at the history of the region too, linking the events here to the eventual collapse of the Soviet state and the splintering into separate Eastern block countries and how the Ukrainians have been behind the eco-movement in the former block. Occasionally I got a little bogged down with all the people involved but apart from that this is an excellent modern history of a nuclear disaster. ( )
