Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan, Jan 1, 2013 - Technology & Engineering - 145 pages
The Fukushima nuclear disaster in March 2011 led Japan, and many other countries, to change their energy policies. David Elliott reviews the disaster and its global implications, asking whether, despite continued backing by some governments, the growing opposition to nuclear power means the end of the global nuclear renaissance.
