Calculated Risks : Highly Radioactive Waste and Homeland Security, Hardback Book

Calculated Risks : Highly Radioactive Waste and Homeland Security Hardback

Part of the Homeland Security series


This well-documented study examines one of the increasingly pressing problems for US homeland security: the storage and management of radioactive waste.

Despite pressing homeland security and energy security concerns associated with highly radioactive waste, political considerations have prevented policy makers from adopting adequate long-term solutions to the problem.

This book explores nuclear waste problems through the broader lens of federal, state and local government and the resultant constraints on policy that emerge within the American political system.

Presenting specific case studies to highlight the deficiencies in current policy and planning as well as the possibility of terrorist activity, it is highly suited to courses on security studies and environmental politics.
