In This Review
Nuclear Proliferation: The Spent Fuel Problem
Pergamon Press, 1979, 221 pp.
Nuclear Energy and Nuclear Weapons Proliferation
Crane, Russak, 1979, 462 pp.
Two valuable contributions to the nonproliferation bookshelf which reflect the growing trend toward specialization within this subject. Williams and Deese deal with the political, institutional and legal aspects of international spent-fuel management; their volume contains contributions on possibilities within five geographic regions and it also has chapters on economic and technical considerations. The SIPRI book is a scientifically oriented discussion of many aspects of the fuel cycle; it is an unusually comprehensive volume.
