Although advanced technologies are the cornerstone of modern life, few people understand how these technologies, such as robotics or nuclear science, actually work. Fewer still realize how - and how dramatically - technology influences our society and culture. Nuclear Technology is a reference guide that provides non-specialists with the most up-to-date information on seminal developments in nuclear technology, as well as covering the social, political, and technical impacts of those developments on everyday life, both now and in the future. Included are: a detailed history of nuclear technology's evolution; a discussion of civilian and military applications of nuclear technology; a chronology of major developments and discoveries; profiles of prominent scientists, politicians, popularizers, and institutions; explanations of key principles; a discussion of nuclear technology's major impacts and implications; an examination of major issues surrounding nuclear technology's use; predictions of future advances. Nuclear Technology also offers a glossary of terms, a list of key associations, a list of print and electronic information resources, over 90 illustrations, and an index.

Nuclear Technologyr is an excellent resource for teachers or students. History, applications, issues, and possible future developments in the field are all covered in a format that makes complex issues easy to understand. Historical references from the Greek philosophers to modern terrorism, applications from weapons to agriculture, a comprehensive section on current impacts, and a lengthy section on current issues all combine to make this a valuable source for content and connections....[a] valuable addition to any high school or college level science course that covers this content."-NSTA National Science Teachers Association
