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 Australias forgotten atomic tragedy into a global context.
