Title Review

Inspite of the growing strength of the people’s movement against nuclear energy in India, the government of the country is working fast towards promotion of nuclear energy as a solution to country’s future energy needs and is embarking on a massive nuclear energy expansion programme. Against the said background, the present book endeavours to examine the issue in detail. Analysing the claims of nuclear energy being safe, cheap and green, the book reviews the global nuclear energy scenario, look at India’s nuclear energy programme, assesses the true economic costs of nuclear electricity, discusses the safety and other issues, and finally arguing against the promotion of nuclear energy, it suggests suitable and sustainable alternatives. Written in a simple language and lucid style the book should be an equal attraction for the lay reader and those who are technically concerned with this topical issue.
