This edited volume examines the liabilities and assets of the global expansion of nuclear power programs, offering analyses from some of the world's leading experts on the politics and economics of energy policy. The book is divided into four major sections containing chapters written by various authors. Those sections address the following issues: economic, environmental and political prospects; the expansion of nuclear power in existing and future nuclear nations; the production and disposal of nuclear fuel; and the use of market economics to price nuclear power and its risks. The volume offers insight into the economic and policy dilemmas that governments and the nuclear industry face with respect to nuclear power.
