This bibliography brings together a broad base of literature directly related to the Three Mile Island-2 accident and its aftermath, covering the humanities, social sciences, hard sciences such as medicine, nuclear biology, and the environment, and government publications. Comprised of articles, editorials, letters, and news items from professional journals; monographs; federal and Pennsylvania government documents; and Congressional hearings, all materials cited are written in English or are English translations of foreign language items. The introductory essay by Lieutenant Governor William W. Scranton III (Pennsylvania) provides an interesting and informative account of the accident at Three Mile Island, and examines its impact on the public as well as its environmental, economic, medical, legal, and social effects. The book is arranged by subject for the journal articles, with separate chapters for popular literature and proceedings. Government documents are arranged by issuing agency, and include the President's Commission, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and the Department of Energy.
