Review

"Hecht has written the first history of nuclear Africa which, given the importance of the subject and the obstacles she faced, is a major achievement."--Jock McCulloch, "Journal of African History"

Hecht has written the first history of nuclear Africa which, given the importance of the subject and the obstacles she faced, is a major achievement.--Jock McCulloch, "Journal of African History"

Not only does the book stand out as one of the most comprehensive attempts to study the history of uranium mining in Africa, it also caters to an expansive academic audience -- from historians of science and technology and sociologists and anthropologists of science, to those taking a broader interest in labour rights, public health issues and mining corporations.--Jayita Sarkar "The British Journal for the History of Science "
