Nuclear-related distress is now a widely recognized psychosocial phenomenon. Since 1979, the date of the Three Mile Island accident, Glendinning has conducted workshops and seminars to help people deal with this distress. This personal and impassioned book makes a case for "nuclear therapy"using group work to break through numbness, unexpressed "earthgrief," and despair over our lack of power. To engender a new attitude, Glendinning recommends "rites of passage" to mark a re-visioning of the tenuousness of life, a realization of "the imperatives of a shared planet." Parts of this work are overwrought and merely inspirational; other parts are effective and sure to fuel efforts at social change. For general collections.William Abrams, Portland State Univ.
