Unlocking the Atom gives an introduction to radiation, both natural and man-made, and covers the complete nuclear spectrum including power reactors, safety, nuclear waste, medicine, uranium, fusion, industrial and research applications.
This material is presented from a Canadian viewpoint, although it is placed in a global perspective.
Unlocking the Atom is illustrated with nearly 80 figures and photos with profiles of ten Canadian nuclear pioneers. For further details and ordering information, click here.

Wiles carefully describes the nature of radioactivity and of nuclear power and discusses in detail the management of radioactive waste by the multi-barrier system, but also takes an unusual approach to assessing the risks. Using knowledge of the chemical properties of the various radionuclides in spent fuel, this book follows each of the important radionuclides as it travels through the many barriers placed in its path.
A careful analysis of the critical points of the disposal plan emphasizes site rejection criteria and other stages at which particular care must be taken, demonstrating how dangers can be anticipated and putting to rest the fear of nuclear fuel waste and its geological burial. It then compares the advantages and disadvantages of making electricity with nuclear energy versus making it with fossil fuels.
Ordering information is available here. Written for anyone interested in nuclear energy, this book offers a complete explanation of how nuclear reactors work. The reader learns how radiation is generated, how each of the current different models of nuclear reactors works, why current reactor designs are very safe, how the disposal of nuclear waste will be handled, and why nuclear energy will be the best source of energy for the future.
