This work explores the history and cultural impact of nuclear science and technology in Britain. The chapters begin with the establishment of nuclear science in the early 1900s and conclude with a discussion of nuclear issues pertinent to the period between 1990-2015. The author addresses the advent of civilian nuclear power reactors as well as the production and deployment of nuclear weapons. Each chapter analyzes governmental and other official sources and also considers unofficial sources including journalism, fiction, and expressions of life in Britain during the specified period. The work presents regional views and nuclear culture in the context of the larger British national perspective.
