"Radioactive Waste" provides a detailed historical account of the policy and practice of radioactive waste management in Britain, Sweden, and Germany. In their differing approaches, these three countries define the parameters of civil nuclear strategy in Europe. The comparative analysis of the evolution of policy clarifies the context of political and technical decision-making. Frans Berkhout assesses the varying degrees of influence which the public, the industry, and the government exercise over these actions, and applies the concept of "boundaries of control," questioning the extent to which such control can be relinquished. This analysis of nuclear strategy, the politics of nuclear power, and the shifting emphasis of government regulation redefines the issue and sets it at the center of the current debate about power, the environment, and society.
