From Library Journal:

Medvedev, a chief engineer at Chernobyl when it was built in 1970, graphically describes the events leading up to and following the world's worst nuclear accident. Asked to conduct an investigation less than two weeks after the explosion, he interviewed most of the major participants, including many who died within weeks from radiation sickness. In lucid detail and with an insider's understanding, Medvedev describes the human and technical failings that led to the accident and, with enormous compassion, recounts the efforts of firefighters and many of the reactor's operators who gave their lives in the struggle to contain the disaster. An authoritative primary document, this book is also an important rumination on the technological and political hubris that led to this disaster. For another Soviet account, see Zhores Medvedev's The Legacy of Chernobyl , LJ 6/15/90--Ed.
