In 1947, Britain decided that it must possess nuclear weapons. Unlike the US and the USSR, it did not have the vast empty spaces in which to conduct the tests that would be necessary to develop these weapons. The solution was found in Australia. British Atomic Weapons Trials in Australia, first published in 1987, tells the story of that unique partnership. This new edition includes fresh evidence about the weapons under development, the effects of the tests on participants, and the recent clean-up of the testing range.
