Description

At the time when Robinson wrote this book, the largest known source of radioactive contamination of the world's environment was a government-owned nuclear plant called Sellafield, not far from Wordsworth's cottage in the Lakes District; one child in sixty was dying from leukemia in the village closest to the plant. The central question of this eloquently impassioned book is: How can a country that we persist in calling a welfare state consciously risk the lives of its people for profit.

Mother Country is a 1989 National Book Award Finalist for Nonfiction.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 01, 1990 – Great Britain, the world's largest commercial producer of plutonium, also leads the world in environmental pollution, Robinson claims. In what PW termed a ``convincing, explosive expose,'' British economic and social history is examined to prove that the profit motive engenders this flagrant neglect of environment and individuals.
