Review of Koichi Hasegawa's book Beyond Fukushima
  • Daniel P Aldrich, Northeastern University
This important new book tackles a question that has vexed many observers since the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami set off meltdowns at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plants in Japan. While in the early 2000s many observers proclaimed the start of a global nuclear renaissance, the inability of the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) to prevent and then successful contain a nuclear accident at Fukushima put that on hold.
