Fukushima and Chernobyl
A Memorial - April 2011

I recommend the following conference book for people who want to understand safety aspects and get sociological views and technical background information on the accident in the nuclear power plants of Fukushima Dai-Ichi:

The Fukushima Dai-Ichi Accident

edited by P.B. Ladkin, C. Goeker, and B. Sieker
published in 2013, by LIT Verlag
ISBN 978-3-643-90446-1

The book is based on an interdisciplinary workshop on "System Engineering" that took place in Bielefeld in August 2011. Participants were mainly system-safety engineers, software engineers, and sociologist. Included is a short essay by sociologist Stefan Strohschneider (from the FSU Jena).

The book is written in English; a translation to German will likely never happen. Therefore I give the description here also in English, only.
