A much-needed complement to the mostly technical literature in this challenge, the publication offers huge reports of the response of citizens--whether rural or city, near-site citizens or potential visitors--to proposed nuclear waste websites round the country, quite Nevada's Yucca Mountain. carried out via unique sociologists, psychologists, political scientists, and economists, those reports represent the main complete account on hand of the effect of public perceptions and critiques at the nuclear waste coverage method within the usa. As such, the gathering will make clear the politics of nuclear waste siting and may supply impetus to the stalled debate over the problem.

We match those issues against the themes and patterns of findings from the chapters to draw out the important substantive and policy implications and, especially, to draw attention to those aspects of conventional policy wisdom that are at odds with the evidence accumulated from the various studies.

Technical substance was placed in opposition to 'parochial' interests and politics.
