December 1952

The recent 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor meltdown and reactor problems in Japan have made nuclear reactor safety front page news. Before December 1952 such problems were unknown but on December 12 of that year the world's first serious commercial reactor problem happened in Canada - at Chalk River.

Here are two books from Harlequin Books, Canada's only remaining mass market paperback publisher in late 1952, that were on the newsstands that December day.
