Nuclear energy is a mature, safe and reliable
technology capable of supplying electricity and / or heat on a large scale, at
an affordable price, and without pollution or greenhouse gases. Because of
these virtues, and the technology's ability to confer greater energy
independence, governments around the world are turning increasingly to nuclear
power as a central element in national energy strategies.

authoritative resource for educators, students, policy-makers and interested
lay-people alike. With balanced and accessible text, it provides:
introduction to nuclear science
- A valuable
account of many aspects of nuclear technology, including industry
- Answers to
public concerns about nuclear power including safety, proliferation,
radiation and waste
data and references
Now in its fourth edition, the text of Nuclear
Energy in the 21st Century builds on seven editions of Nuclear
Electricity(1978-2003). Since the first edition of Nuclear
Electricity, the intention has been to get behind the controversies and
selective arguments, and present facts about energy demand and how it is met,
in part, by nuclear power.
