Fukushima takes an in-depth look at the March, 2011 nuclear disaster that occurred as a result of one the most powerful earthquakes ever to hit Japan. In his lively and conversational writing style, Sargent puts the tragedy in useful scientific and political context by exploring what led the Japanese to build 55 nuclear power plants on one of the most seismically active locations on Earth.
