Nuclear Disaster at Fukushima Daiichi is a timely and groundbreaking account of the disturbing landscape of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear meltdown amidst an earthquake and tsunami on Japan's NE coastline. In providing riveting insights into its background and the disaster management options taken and the political, technical and social reactions as the accident unfolded, it critically reflects on both the implications for managing future nuclear disasters and the future of nuclear power itself. Informed by a leading cast of international scholars in science, technology and society studies, the account is at the forefront of discussing the Fukushima Daiichi disaster against the background of social, environmental and energy security when such issues dominate global agenda's for sustainable futures. Its thoughtful critique of the risks of nuclear energy is an important counter-balance to plans for nuclear build as central to sustainable energy in the face of climate change, diminishing fossil fuel, peak oil, and rising electricity costs. Adding significantly to the debate of these critical issues, the book will interest academics, policy-makers, energy pundits, public interest organizations, citizens and students, engaged variously with disaster management, political science, environmental/energy policy and risk, public health, sociology, public participation, civil society activism, new media, sustainability, and technology governance.
