Synopsis: Shows how the world has not yet discovered a safe solution for the disposal of nuclear waste from the technology that created some of the world's most powerful weaponry and has become a major source of energy.

From School Library Journal: Grade 7 Up?With just enough detail to provide sufficient background, Andryszewski lays out the problem of handling long-lived, highly poisonous waste that cannot be safely neutralized. She briefly describes the history of nuclear power and weapons production, but focuses on the various proposals for waste transportation and disposal. Plutonium rates an entire chapter: its early promise, technological difficulties, high cost, and connection with illegal bomb-making are all covered. A concluding chapter covers international issues, including problems in the former Soviet Union and mention of the frightening prospect of China coming to depend heavily on nuclear power. The author's viewpoint is somewhat critical of the nuclear industry, pointing out its heavy government subsidies and apparent lack of caution, but she concentrates on description rather than blame. Her writing style is clear and the organization is quite logical; she neither downplays nor sensationalizes the dramatic facts. One small error; she designates China as the only nation currently testing nuclear weapons; the French are also still doing so. Well-chosen black-and-white photos are captioned and effectively placed. Edward Dolan and Margaret Scariano's Nuclear Waste (Watts, 1990) and Anne Galperin's Nuclear Energy?Nuclear Waste (Chelsea, 1992) cover the same issues with more illustrations, but are not as up to date on technical and political developments. Andryszewski provides a much-needed update on the subject.?Jonathan Betz-Zall, Sno-Isle Regional Library System, Edmonds, WA
