Abstract

Focuses primarily on the USA but draws examples from Europe and Australia. The author examines the technical, political, and constitutional issues which surround the question of high-level nuclear waste transportation. Major questions of safety and public perception are not being addressed by state institutions. Discusses the ways in which state and professional actors have attempted to limit the political discourse on these and related policy-relevant issues. -from Author
