Politics and Nuclear Power: Energy Policy in Western Europe

By Michael T. Hatch

University Press of Kentucky, 1986, 219 pp.

A skillful tracing of the difficulties encountered by West Germany's energy policy, as an increasing number of people became concerned about nuclear power, occupies much of this book. Shorter treatments show how the differences in political processes permitted the French government to stay on course about nuclear energy but virtually paralyzed the Dutch government when it faced similar problems.
