CITYDordrecht, Neatherlands

This book chronicles the history of the failed Shoreham nuclear power plant on Long Island, New York, from its beginnings in 1967 until its abandonment in the late 1980s. The work provides an interesting discussion of how state and local politics, corporations, and influential individuals led to Shoreham's becoming one of the nuclear industry's most spectacular failures. The author's sources include published literature on nuclear power, archival information on the Shoreham plant, newspaper articles from the local Newsday newspaper and the New York Times, and interviews with persons involved with the plant.
