9780143116721: Uranium

Uranium occurs naturally in the Earth's crust, yet it holds the power to end all life on the planet. This is its fundamental paradox and its story is a fascinating window into the valour, greed, genius and folly of humanity. A problem for miners in the Middle Ages, an inspiration to novelists, a boon medicine, a devastating weapon at the end of WWII, a polluter, and excuse for war with Iraq and a possible last defense against global warming, Uranium is the riveting story of the most powerful element on earth and wone which will shape the future, for better or worse.
