This new volume is an exploration of the political and policy issues that have influenced the development of nuclear power. In addition to a history of the nuclear industry, the main areas of current controversy are examined. These include economics, nuclear proliferation, radiation, reactor safety, and the disposal of nuclear waste. This wide-ranging and authoritative analysis reveals striking disparities between the negative perceptions generally held by the public, and the actual achievements of the nuclear industry. Alternative sources of energy, and the future role of nuclear power in light of the greenhouse effect and population growth are also surveyed.
