Chernobyl and Nuclear Power in the USSR provided the first detailed account of the Soviet nuclear power industry and of the nature, impact and consequences of the Chernobyl (Chornobyl) disaster of 28 April 1986. Marples places the Chornobyl accident within the context of Soviet nuclear development. He includes a Chornobyl diary, that covers Soviet reporting during the first two weeks after the accident; Soviet energy policy; Eastern European and Soviet nuclear development in the 1980s; safety issues; and an account of the immediate aftermath of the disaster and the clean-up operation.

Marples, a researcher at the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, has produced a remarkable account of the Chernobyl nuclear plant accident of April, 1986. Working mainly from broadcast and print media from the Soviet Union, he has pieced together a credible story of the background of the USSR's nuclear program, as well as the accident. For example, Marples speculates persuasively on the reasons a country rich in fossil fuels has gone heavily into generating nuclear power. He also covers the problems of construction, schedule, and safety besetting the program. Where Soviet accounts are conflicting, Marples makes reasonable judgments based on his expertise on energy questions in the Ukraine. A satisfying study with considerable relevance to corresponding problems in the United States. Daniel LaRossa, Connetquot P.L., Bohemia, N.Y.
