Danielsson, Bengt, b. 1921, & Marie-Thérèse / Therese Danielsson, b. 1923  
Poisoned Reign: French Nuclear Colonialism in the Pacific

Publisher: Penguin Books ['Second revised edition, 1986']..
xv, [8]-323, [1] p., 3 maps; 19.5 cm. First published 1977 under the title 'Moruroa, mon amour.' Foreword by Chris Masters, who investigated the 'Rainbow Warrior' affair. 'Since 1966, France has used Moruroa, a small atoll in the Pacific, as the testing site for its nuclear bombs— despite opposition from both the Polynesian people and nations throughout the world. In the meantime, levels of radioactive fall-out and sea contamination, and the extent of damage to Moruroa itself, have remained a closely-guarded military secret. 'Poisoned Reign' traces the history of French nuclear involvement in the Pacific. It also shows how the tests have been used to strengthen colonial rule in French Polynesia— and this at a time when all British colonies in the Pacific have won their independence.' Stock# 39,286. Vg/ paper. Anthropology; atomic bomb testing, nuclear weapons testing; South Pacific.
