About this book

An exploration of how and why Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, China and India have initiated and developed nuclear energy programs and what challenges they face today. Were the nuclear programmes driven by the low energy endowment, a desire to pursue international prestige, national security concerns, environmental pollution or economic development?

Reviews

'Complex and many-faceted contains a wealth of genuine, interesting and valuable historical contextual and current information concerning the prospects for a nuclear renaissance focusing on a very broad geo-political area, from a group of, almost exclusively, experienced and adept pro-nuclear academics and practitioners. In general, the predominant portrayal of the risks and uncertainties associated with the nuclear fuel cycle are largely characterized as containable, known, and societally acceptable. These insights, quite rightly, take their place in the energy futures debate.' Paul Dorfman, Senior Researcher, Warwick Business School, University of Warwick, UK
