Summary:
"This book challenges the existing histories and associated explanations of the growth of the anti-civil nuclear power movement in the UK from 1955 to 1979. It argues that opposition to nuclear power emerged in the 1970s because of the post-war concerns of a minority of people about the dangers of atomic energy. Continuity of opposition to the building of nuclear power stations dated back to the 1950s."--Jacket.
