Fall and Rise of Nuclear Power in Britain
A HistoryeBook - 2016
In the 1950s, Britain was a pioneer in civil nuclear power and there were high hopes that this could be a source of cheap electricity and a valuable export opportunity. In The Fall and Rise of Nuclear Power in Britain, Simon Taylor looks at why these hopes were never realised, and how we have come to see a new rise in nuclear power in recent years. Throughout the book, Taylor looks at energy policy, economics, politics, and changing environmental priorities. Will this new nuclear energy turn out to be a heroic story of UK leadership on a matter of global importance, or will prove a hugely costly folly, as with British nuclear power in the past?. --Provided by publisher.
