Seeing the Light: The Case for Nuclear Power in the 21st Century (Paperback): Scott L. Montgomery, Thomas Graham Jr Seeing the Light: The Case for Nuclear Power in the 21st Century (Paperback)
Scott L. Montgomery, Thomas Graham Jr
R667 R543 Discovery Miles 5 430 Save R124 (19%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Nuclear power is not an option for the future but an absolute necessity. Global threats of climate change and lethal air pollution, killing millions each year, make it clear that nuclear and renewable energy must work together, as non-carbon sources of energy. Fortunately, a new era of growth in this energy source is underway in developing nations, though not yet in the West. Seeing the Light is the first book to clarify these realities and discuss their implications for coming decades. Readers will learn how, why, and where the new nuclear era is happening, what new technologies are involved, and what this means for preventing the proliferation of weapons. This book is the best work available for becoming fully informed about this key subject, for students, the general public, and anyone interested in the future of energy production, and, thus, the future of humanity on planet Earth.

Preventing Catastrophe - The Use and Misuse of Intelligence in Efforts to Halt the Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction... Preventing Catastrophe - The Use and Misuse of Intelligence in Efforts to Halt the Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction (Hardcover)
Keith A. Hansen, Thomas Graham Jr
R461 Discovery Miles 4 610 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

"Preventing Catastrophe" is written by two authors who are experienced "Washington hands" and who understand the interplay between intelligence and policymaking. Both have been personally involved, in the United States and overseas, in pursuing national and international measures to stop the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Their extensive experience is evident in this book, which puts the Iraqi WMD issue in proper perspective, explains the challenge of monitoring small clandestine programs, and explains how the effort to prevent terrorist acquisition and use of WMD differs from preventing their acquisition and use by nation states. At the same time, the authors are able to make a complex subject understandable to non-technical experts, making this book a useful teaching tool, especially for those who have little or no knowledge or experience in US national security decision making.
"National intelligence and international inspections are necessary to create confidence that violations of non-proliferation commitments are detected in time to permit appropriate action. Both must be pursued with professionalism and critical minds avoiding poor intelligence or cosmetic inspections. The issues studied thoroughly and with good judgment in this welcome volume by Graham and Hansen were intensely controversial in the case of Iraq but remain central to international counter-proliferation efforts."--Hans Blix, Executive Chairman of the Weapons of Mass Destruction Commission
