Publisher Comments:

Nuclear energy is one of the most contentious areas of Indias technology policy today. This book contains state-of-the-art discussions, by top experts, of a whole range of diverse issues that constitute this complex subject. The topics discussed include public concerns, such as reactor safety and radiation hazards; technical issues, such as the use of breeder reactors and closed fuel cycles; and legal issues, such as the regulatory bodies, major legislative acts, international conventions, and rules. It brings together, for the first time, expert contributions both from apex leaders of the nuclear program and from those who have serious reservations about the program. Arguments both for and against nuclear energy are given, and matters are discussed in sufficient from contributors including Shree Kumar Apte, Srikumar Banerjee, S.A. Bhardwaj, P. Chellapandi, S.C. Chetal, Rajagopala Chidambaram, Surendra Gadekar , Sanghamitra D. Gadekar, Chaitanyamoy Ganguly, Ravi B. Grover, Frank von Hippel, P.C. Kesavan, Baldev Raj, R. Rajaraman, and R. Ramachandran.
