Summary

As energy resources, particularly fossil fuels, become strained, nuclear energy must be considered as an alternative. This book presents an objective view of nuclear energy as an important source for future energy 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. This new edition has been brought up to date throughout, with new material, data, figures, and tables.
