The Story of an Indo-Russian Nuclear Power Plant

author Professor Raminder Kaur

  • A history and ethnography of the largest anti-nuclear power plant movement, providing important perspectives on changes in social movements in India over the last 4 decades
  • One of few books that have at its heart the many facets of a grassroots movement for energy justice in the global south from the 1980s that, three decades on, went on to become an international phenomenon
  • The book discusses how national and transnational solidarity was both received and curtailed, and direct and indirect repression of the anti-nuclear movement with the engineering of 'death conditions' for its protagonists
  • The book analyses the (re)production of knowledge and ignorance in the understanding of radiation, tactics to create an evidence-base in response to the otherwise unavailable or inaccessible data on radiation and public health in India
