Book Description

November 28, 1996 0198565402 978-0198565406
The subject of nuclear power is fraught with controversy, and it is often discussed with an inadequate understanding of the science behind today's reactor technology. This book covers the entire nuclear fuel cycle, from mining uranium ore to disposal of radioactive wastes. It is intended for a broad audience of nonspecialist readers. Basic principles are fully explained, and topics such as environmental radioactivity--both naturally occurring and man-made--and safety issues are explored. Anyone interested in the operation of today's nuclear power-generating plants will want to have a copy of this informative volume.


Editorial Reviews

Review

`Different parts of the nuclear cycle are explained clearly and interestingly, with enough technical content to satisfy readers modestly familiar with scientific terminology but not the minute detail of concern only to experts.............The book achieves its purpose convincingly, to provide an overall survey of the nuclear industry understandable to readers with some background in science.....................a readable and most interesting account of one important means of helping to satisfy the world's present and future energy needs' Konrad B Krauskoff, Stanford University

The book achieves its purpose convincingly, to provide an overall survey of the nuclear industry understandable to readers with some background in science. Emphasis is on the industry as it exists in Great Britain, but enough material is included about the history of the subject and about activities elsewhere to give a balanced picture of the industry on a worldwide basis. The authors have provided us with a readable and most interesting account of one important means of helping to satisfy the world's present and future energy needs.
