Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"By analyzing work practices and language, the author provides a superb sociology of the nuclear workplace, with its divisions and hierarchies, and explains the often unexpected responses of the workers to the fear of contamination. This is a major contribution to the anthropology of modern life." Bulletin of Science, Technology and Sociology
