The Fall and Rise of Nuclear Power in Britain: A History (2016)


The go-ahead for Britain’s first new nuclear power station in 20 years, Hinkley Point C, marks a major change of policy. This book traces the UK’s nuclear energy history, from the optimism of the 1950s, through the disillusionment of the 1980s to a new role for nuclear in the 21st century.
