D. Reidel Publishing Company, Dordrecht, Holland, 1980, 176 pages, ISBN: 978-90-277-1513-5, 978-94-010-9563-1The purpose of this book is to raise some of the social, political, and ethical issues which for so long have been ignored in making government assessments of nuclear power. In raising these questions, author hopes to provide valuable insight and analysis necessary for articulating a viable public policy toward atomic energy. The aim is not only to establish ethical criteria for assessing nuclear technology but also to suggest some of the constraints that ought to operate in our numerous risk-benefit tradeoffs.This book grew out of projects funded by the Kentucky Humanities Council in 1974 and. 1975 and by the Environmental Protection Agency in 1976 and 1977. As a result of the generosity of these two agencies, author was able to study the logical, methodological, and ethical assumptions inherent in the decision to utilize nuclear fission for generating electricity. Since both grants gave me the opportunity to survey public policy-making, author discovered that there were critical lacunae in allegedly comprehensive analyses of various energy technologies.Preface Introduction Nuclear Technology Reactor Emissions and Equal Protection Nuclear Wastes and the Argument from Ignorance Core Melt Catastrophe and Due Process Nuclear Economics and the Problem of Externalities Nuclear Safety and the Naturalistic Fallacy
