Description

In Yoshida's Dilemma, Rob Gilhooly, a long-term resident of Japan who has worked extensively as a journalist and photojournalist, has assembled a wealth of material, ranging from the reminiscences of the then Prime Minister of Japan, Naoto Kan, to the stories of those who worked to save the nation from disaster when the massive earthquake and tsunami hit the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant on March 11, 2011. "As one of the few journalists to have covered the Fukushima story from the very start, Rob Gilhooly is perfectly placed to discuss the disaster's causes and aftermath, and its wider ramifications for the future of nuclear power. ... Gilhooly combines fine story-telling with journalistic integrity to produce a book that is admirably free of hyperbole." Justin McCurry (The Guardian) "Rob Gilhooly has written what is probably the most comprehensive English-language account yet of the Fukushima nuclear meltdown. Gilhooly is among the best-informed foreign reporters on this issue in Japan ... His remarkable pictures throughout the book are a bonus. Highly recommended." David McNeill (The Economist) "A powerful synthesis of the technical and the personal, Gilhooly succeeds in conveying the events of March 2011, its aftermath and the dramatic impact on the people of Fukushima and wider Japan. Six years after the start of the accident, Yoshida's Dilemma is a necessary reminder of how through the actions of heroic individuals and luck Japan avoided an even greater catastrophe." S. David Freeman, former Tennessee Valley Authority chairman, engineer, energy expert and author of Energy: The New Era and Winning Our Energy Independence
