Editorial Reviews

'This book is an excellent mix of divergent views on the suddenly re-merging nuclear debate in the UK. Besides covering the history and geography of the technolog, it also gives a rich mix of up-to-date analysis from many perspectives. An essential guide to the nuclear debate in the new context of climate change and fears about energy insecurity' - Professor Gordon MacKerron, Director, Sussex Energy Group, SPRU, University of Sussex and Chair, Committee on Radioactive Waste Management'Possibly the only UK book covering the contemporary debate. Nuclear or Not?...offers divergent views and perspectives on nuclear power.' - No 2 Nuclear Power
