The Manhattan Project began a new era in warfare, one that has a far-reaching impact on the health of the environment and human society. In this detailed book, an environmental engineer with more than 50 years of experience in this sector describes the layers of nuclear weapons production and how they continue to change and shape the world we live in.

This book describes the history of the uranium industry from the 1930s to the present, focusing on the Western U.S. as well as six major nuclear weapons production facilities in the U.S. and one in Siberia, Russia that have altered the environments in which they reside.

Environmental Legacy of the Manhattan Project will appeal to military history enthusiasts, particularly those attracted to the development of the uranium industry. It offers a deep dive into the complex and secretive world of nuclear weapons production and the subsequent growth of commercial nuclear power plants. Readers with an interest in the scientific, political, and environmental aspects of nuclear warfare will find the book informative. Additionally, the book raises important ethical questions about the continuing production of nuclear weapons that all individuals should concern themselves with.
