In the wake of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, Soviet authorities minimized the health and environmental consequences of nuclear radiation. Drawing on a decade of archival research and interviews, Kate Brown unveils the breadth of the devastation—which may have killed 150,000 in Ukraine alone—and the whitewash that followed.
