   schema:reviewBody ""This study examines one of the increasingly pressing problems for U.S. 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 policymakers from adopting adequate long-term solutions to the problem. This book explores nuclear waste problems through the broader lens of federal 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."--Jacket." ;
