Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415054931, Paperback)

Radioactive Waste provides a detailed historical account on the policy and practice of radawaste management in Britain, Sweden and the Federal Republic of Germany. In their differing approaches, these three countries define the parameters of civil nuclear strategy in Europe. The comparative analysis of the evolution of policy clarifies the context of political and technical decision-making. Assessing the varying degrees of influence which the public, the industry and the government exercise over these actions. Frans Berkhout applies the concept of the boundaries' of control questioning the extent to which such control can be relinquished. This analysis of nuclear strategy, the politics of nuclear power and the shifting emphasis of government regulation redefines the isssue of radawaste management and sets it at the centre of the current debate about power, the environment and society.
