Woodhead Publishing, Sawston, Cambridge, 2015, 201 pages, ISBN: 978-0-08-100118-9, 978-0-08-100132-5Woodhead Publishing Series in EnergyOn March 11, 2011, The Great East Japan Earthquake occurred, and the tsunami waves it induced triggered an unprecedented accident at the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO)-owned Fukushima-1 (Daiichi) Nuclear Power Plant (NPP). Three and a half years have already passed since then. Great efforts by those involved with recovery have placed the reactors in cold shutdown; however, the problems of contaminated water, over 130,000 evacuees (160,000 immediately after the accident) still kept out of their homes, and decontamination still continue.The book begins with Chapter 1, which outlines the accident and the operation of the nuclear power industry, including how the government and TEPCO prepared for nuclear safety and disaster prevention. Chapter 2 explains the accident progress inside the plant; Chapter 3 shows where and how the central and local governments made mistakes; and, Chapter 4 outlines problems with TEPCO’s response. Chapter 5 discusses the events outside the plant, including how radiation was released and how people evacuated the area. The chapter also discusses how to tackle the problem of decontamination. Chapter 6 reviews the accident from the viewpoint of the “Study of Failure” and reveals my opinions after serving as the committee chair, and finally, Chapter 7 concludes with suggestions on how we should approach (or depart from) nuclear power.
