Nuclear Power and the Spread of Nuclear Weapons: Can We Have One Without the Other?

by

Nuclear Power and the Spread of Nuclear Weapons: Can We Have One Without the Other? Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the wake of Californias energy crisis, policymakers rush to satisfy growing demand requirements may run the risk of naively ignoring the larger issues and dangers associated with increased reliance on nuclear power. A connection between national nuclear power programs and nuclear proliferation can be found in the strategic initiatives of North Korea, Iraq, Iran, India, and Pakistan.

In response to this threat, the Nuclear Control Institute has assembled a consortium of experts to underscore the connection that exists between nuclear power and the proliferation of nuclear weapons. They evaluated proliferation risks and proposed viable alternative energy sources. This volume includes the analysis of such respected thinkers as Pulitzer Prize–winning author Richard Rhodes; Rep. Edward Markey (D-Mass.); Amory Lovins, CEO of the Rocky Mountain Institute; and Amb. Robert Galucci, dean of the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service.

Book News Annotation:

To mark the 20th anniversary of the Nuclear Control Institute, contributors with a number of views on the question shared views at an April 2001 conference in Washington, DC. Besides introductions and conclusions, the 17 presentations consider how essential nuclear power is, whether it can be made proliferation-resistant and free of long- term wastes, and its role in the acquisition of nuclear weapons. The papers are not indexed.
