TITLENuclear Imperatives and Public Trust: Dealing with Radioactive Waste
PUBLISHERResources for the Future
CITYDanvers, MA

This book examines the problem of nuclear waste disposal in terms of its social impact, need for a uniform policy, and the need for worldwide implementation. The author argues against spent fuel reprocessing, believing that direct disposal of waste simplifies the problem. He also believes that the dangers of nuclear waste are far less than those of reactor safety, nuclear terrorism, and nuclear weapons proliferation—though the public seems to believe otherwise. In his examination of the problem, politics keeps preventing the intelligent disposal and management of the world’s vast nuclear waste stockpiles. The book takes a global perspective, and discusses nuclear waste problems and solutions in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, France, and Japan.
