EBOLOWA and NUCLEAR POWER
State-owned EDF is the nuclear power world-leader, but in the early 1970s French energy was oil-produced and in total crisis thanks to the OPEC embargo. Word on the street and in the French media was "we don't have oil, but we have ideas", like to go NUCLEAR. EBOLOWA, currently awaiting last detail ISBN number, covers what that meant for remote corners of the French Empire like Cameroon and Niger. As you know, it's based on a true story of courage, complicity and murder - - and of the rise of nuclear power.
