A useful introduction to certain political and legal questions relating to the use and international control of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. It provides the essential background information on the relevant treaties and international institutions, concentrating on the functions of the International Atomic Energy Agency and its safeguards against the proliferation of weapons material. The political tone is neutral, and controversial issues, though mentioned, get rather light treatment.
