Beyond Belief

Author(s): Roger Cross


This provocative historical work provides a voice for the forgotten victims of the British atomic bomb tests conducted in Australia during the 1950s. Raising disturbing questions about the authorities who conducted the tests, this investigative work reveals how successive British and Australian governments have denied their understanding of the dangers of ionizing radiation in the 1950s. Uncovering scenarios in which government scientists employed to monitor the tests were given protective clothing, while military personnel and workers were left unprotected and exposed to a simulated theatre of atomic war, this work places Australia's forgotten atomic tragedy into a global context.

Wakefield |Press, 2005. A very good paperback copy with signs of previous ownership.
