As resources, particularly fossil fuels, become strained, (despite its known shortcomings) must be considered as an alternative. This book presents an objective view of nuclear as an important source for future needs. It discusses various types of reactors, the nuclear fuel cycle, the problem of nuclear waste disposal, reactor accidents, safety and new types of reactors that are being considered, and the cost of electricity from nuclear power. Additional themes include the problem of nuclear weapons, their storage, and, very important, their disposal as nuclear arsenals are pared down.
