School Library Journal - School Library JournalYA-- A nontechnical account of the creation, handling, and disposal of radioactive materials and wastes. The book is biased against nuclear power; although it includes numerous references, it is not a source from which decisions should be made. At best, it is a good starting point for readers who want to research the growth of the nuclear energy industry and the many pitfalls associated with it.
BooknewsBoth a nontechnical information source and a guide to further research, this volume offers a perspective on radioactive waste, a chronology, a summary of laws, regulations and treaties, a directory of organizations, a bibliography of books, articles, and government documents, and an annotated listing of films, filmstrips, and videocassettes.
