This case study recounts the story of the people of the Marshall Islands and their response to American nuclear weapons testing. It describes their efforts to understand the effects of nuclear contamination and to hold the U.S. government accountable for its tests. Barker presents the accounts she collected from Marshallese families, including discussions of the effects of the radiation on their environment, families, social life, and culture. Barker holds a doctorate in anthropology, and is now affiliated with the Embassy of the Republic of the Marshall Islands. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
