Nuclear power is not an option for the future but an absolute necessity. Global threats of climate change and lethal air pollution, killing millions each year, make it clear that nuclear and renewable energy must work together, as non-carbon sources of energy. Fortunately, a new era of growth in this energy source is underway in developing nations, though not yet in the West. Seeing the Light is the first book to clarify these realities and discuss their implications for coming decades. Readers will learn how, why, and where the new nuclear era is happening, what new technologies are involved, and what this means for preventing the proliferation of weapons. This book is the best work available for becoming fully informed about this key subject, for students, the general public, and anyone interested in the future of energy production, and, thus, the future of humanity on planet Earth.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is an accessible and well-written book that could not be more timely. Much current campaigning gives the impression that renewable sources are the full answer to the world's needs for climate safe energy. The balanced discussion in this book shows us the great environmental benefit of today's nuclear power and the potential for development and expanded use. It merits broad reading by anyone interested in the future of energy generation, from the general public to students and scientists to policymakers.' Hans Blix, Director General Emeritus of the International Atomic Energy Agency
'This vitally important book counters nuclear fear with deep knowledge and honest good will. It is by far the best book on the subject yet written. We need its authoritative perspective for the difficult transition we face today away from carbon energy.' Richard Rhodes, Pulitzer Prize recipient for The Making of the Atomic Bomb
