Summary

The benefits of nuclear technology are real. So are the dangers. In Nuclear Choices, physicist Richard Wolfson provides the background needed to make informed choices about nuclear technologies, introducing concepts that can be used for evaluating the claims of both proponents and opponents. Wolfson clearly and concisely explains the basics of nuclear energy, radiation, and nuclear power (electricity, reactors, nuclear waste, and alternatives to nuclear fission).

For this edition he has completely revised the chapter on nuclear weapons (their history, technology, effects, delivery systems, strategy, and control). Readers are encouraged to make their own judgments on controversial nuclear issues.
