David Lochbaum, Edwin Lyman, Susan Q. Stranahan and the Union of Concerned Scientists examine this question carefully in the long shadow of Fukushima Daiichi. The book contains both a gripping narrative of the nuclear accidents at Fukushima three years ago and a careful examination of the relationships between the nuclear industry and its regulators in Japan, especially as viewed from an American perspective, and as replayed on the American stage. The authors are experts in these matters and the writing is terrific.

Nuclear Nation is director Atsushi Funahashi’s attempt to engage us in conversation. This documentary introduces viewers to the former residents of Futaba, the location of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, and gives us a window into their lives after the disaster. The film follows the town’s residents, their lives as refugees, and everything that comes with that: communal living in an abandoned high school near Tokyo, coming to terms with the loss of family members, the loss of home, the lack of compensation, the questions about health from radiation exposure- the list goes on and on.
