Abstract: The scientific report documenting the devastation that would be caused by a nuclear war and the catastrophic effects it would have on health. The report, which incorporates the views of 14 leading medical and scientific experts, has been revised to include the results of several recent studies, including new work demonstrating climatic effects and new knowledge about the importance of conflagration and superfires. Revised estimates also reflect the development of sophisticated computer modelling techniques allowing more precise quantitative predictions of short- and long-term human casualties and the extent of ecological ruin. More than 300 references to the medical, scientific, and military literature are included. By providing a scientific account of predictable events, the book serves to illustrate the main reasons why medical services would have little or nothing to offer injured survivors, and why the only realistic preparation for a nuclear war is to work for its prevention
