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.

This book is good from a policy and management perspective, but is not good if you want to learn how to do calculations.
