From the Inside Flap:

The Nuclear Power set is written for those who are facing a growing world population with fewer resources and an increasingly fragile environment. A deep understanding of physics, mathematics, or the specialized vocabulary of nuclear technology is not necessary to read the books in this series and grasp what is going on in this important corner of science. Understand the problems, meet the challenges, and be ready for the future with the information in these books.

This set is ideal for students and researchers interested in nuclear power.

Key Features:
· Each volume in the set includes an index, a chronology of important events, and a glossary of scientific terms.
· A list of books and Internet resources for further information provides the young reader with an extended depth for every topic, as the study of nuclear technology expands to touch every aspect of the technical world.

Review:

School Library Journal Gr 9 Up-This informative series explores the history, science, and technology of nuclear power. Mahaffey also addresses public concerns about radiation and nuclear safety. The coverage is in-depth, detailed, and meticulously researched. These volumes make nuclear technology understandable by explaining how scientists discovered radiation and giving readers a tour of a typical nuclear reactor plant. Accessible and interesting.

Book Description Facts on File Inc, United States, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. A nuclear accident can involve an explosion, destroying equipment or an entire building and spreading radioactive material over a wide area. When readers think of an explosion, they imagine a large, orange fireball and a great deal of yellow flame. In reality, that is not an accurate depiction of an explosion anywhere except in an oil refinery. Movie directors tend to enhance the drama of an explosion by including a few barrels of gasoline, so that there is a lot of color and a big ball of fire. The results of a nuclear explosion are equally as devastating, but there is no fireball.Written in easy-to-understand language, Nuclear Accidents and Disasters is an examination of the learning process that has occurred over the last half century regarding the nuclear power industry. This brand-new, full-color resource features information on the massive reactor explosion at Chernobyl in Ukraine, Jimmy Carter's experience with a reactor meltdown in Canada, and the ghost village of Pripiyat, Russia. It also examines the various lessons learned from a half century of mishaps and how the nuclear power industry has changed operating procedures and equipment designs due to detailed accident analysis.
