The bookBravo for the Marshallese, by Holly M. Barker, tells the story of how residents of the Marshall Islands have been affected by nuclear testing conducted there by the U.S. government during the twentieth century. In this essay, I’d like you to do three things. First, discuss in detail at least three ways that Marshall Islanders have been affected by the legacy of nuclear contamination. Next, discuss in detail three strategies that Marshall Islanders have used to cope with, mitigate, or gain redress from the problems caused by nuclear testing. Finally, reflect on what this case can teach us more broadly about inter-cultural conflict and how to manage it. Please use evidence from the book to support your argument.
I can provide the tutor with the link and login information to the book that this essay is referring to.

Even the Ailuk and Likiep study mentions the foggy sky, ill people and powder falling on everything.
2. People were highly contaminated due to exposure of radiation. To reduce the effect of radiation many steps were taken. During evacuation of people from small islands like Ronegelap, Ailinginae etc, they were asked to take off all their clothes and stand naked while with a hose pipe they all were washed and later dressed. People felt humiliated but these daily thrice a day bath went for entire 3 months to reduce the radiation impact. Females were crying in shame because of getting undressed in front of male relatives.
