In the 1950s, Soviet nuclear scientists and leaders imagined a stunning future when giant reactors would generate energy quickly and cheaply, nuclear engines would power cars, ships, and airplanes, and peaceful nuclear explosions would transform the landscape. Driven by the energy of the atom, the dream of communism would become a powerful reality. Thirty years later, that dream died in Chernobyl. What went wrong? Based on exhaustive archival research and interviews, Red Atom takes a behind-the-scenes look at the history of the Soviet Union's peaceful use of nuclear power.

And it describes the political, economic, and environmental fallout of Chernobyl.… (mere)

This book does contain a lot of interesting information on nuclear power in Soviet Russia, but it was a pain to get through. I seriously disliked the way the book was organized. It feels like the author was trying to present each item or concept as separate from all the other items presented in the book. Some parts also felt like there was too much information on US programs, followed up with a brief explanation of how the Soviets tried pretty much the same thing. I have read a lot about the American effort to build a nuclear powered airplane. I am reading this book to find out more about the Soviet effort, not get a rehashing of what the Americans did.

The book's chapter on nuclear airplanes and rockets was substantially shorter than the section on food irradiation. I was quite frustrated by this. Overall I was disappointed with the book. I felt it didn't contain very much new or insightful information. ( )

A very detailed history of the civil Soviet nuclear program, with only few references to the military one. All the scientists, engieneers and politicians involved in the program are presented, with detailed biographies. The Chernobyl accident is covered, as well the root causes at the base of it.

It is a very interesting reading, but very long. It is an history book and reading it from end to end in one solution is going to be boring. I did it and found myself skipping several pages of uninteresting biographies. ( )
