This study provides a detailed historical account of the policy and
practice of radioactive waste management in Britain, Sweden and the
Federal Republic of 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.
Assessing the varying degrees of influence which the public, the
industry and the government exercise over these actions, Frans
Berkhout 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 regulations redefines the
issue of radioactive waste management and sets it at the centre of
the current debate about power, the environment and society.
