Originally published in 1987. The Chernobyl disaster intensified the whole debate on the nuclear power industry.
There was great public concern about the industry regulation, about the siting of nuclear facilities, including the dumping of nuclear waste, and about the alleged secretiveness of the industry.
This book examines these and many other important aspects of the industry worldwide and provides much important original research.
It focuses in particular on the political processes which control the industry, on waste disposal and on the social impact.
