Book description

Nuclear power certainly is as a most fascinated research object; technological by nature, it involves a socio-cultural imagery embedded in the broader framework of a country's societal and political traditions and practices. The aims of this book are two-fold, being both empirical and theoretical: on the one hand, it tackles the debates, factors or issues bewildering nuclear decisions in the UK, and on the other, it addresses the broader question of government leverage and governance in today’s neoliberal context. Analysing the current British nuclear policy ignites a broader discussion about the abilities and leverage of the state to spur innovation and influence techno-political decisions in a neoliberal context; Neoliberalism is thus used as both a theoretical framework and a normative political doctrine. Overall, this book delves into a much topical and critical facet of today's British politics, opening up inroads into a wide range of fundamental questions regarding public policy dynamics, the critical function of energy choices, the roles of the public in national industrial projects, or the impact of international regulation on national constraints.
