The Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Shoreham Power Plant

Joan Aron delves into the knotty problems of nuclear regulation with profound insights, lucid writing, and exceptional scholarship. The book reads like a novel: fast-paced, dramatic, and saturated with stories that give the saga of the faltering Shoreham plant its rich texture and profoundly human dimension. . . . A brilliant tour de force, it is destined to become a classic in its field.
Susan J. Tolchin, George Washington University

Examines the nuclear power plant constructed at Shoreham, New York, and the accumulated miscalculations and mishaps that eventually forced its deconstruction. An intricate study of the groups, policies and regulatory issues involved in a historic legal battle.
