Britain, Australia and the Bomb tells the story of the unique partnership between the two countries to develop nuclear weapons in the 1940s and 1950s. This new edition includes fresh evidence about the weapons under development, the effects of the tests on participants, and the recent clean-up of the testing range.
'This compelling book gives an authoritative and admirably lucid account of British nuclear tests in Australia in the 1950s and provides an invaluable guide to the environmental and health consequences of those tests. It is very good to have it reissued and brought up to date.' - David Holloway, Stanford University, USA
'It is written in a very clear and readable style, and is well worth reading for interest alone...It provides an essential and authoritative reference for anyone seriously interested in the nuclear tests and the subsequent controversies' - Professor Chris Hamer, Journal of Contemporary History
