The senior Senator from New Mexico, Pete V. Domenici, has written a thoughtful assessment of the progress Americans have made in their efforts to bring the benefits of nuclear power to mankind. He outlines what went wrong and why, and in this noble quest, what we must now do to recover from and repudiate past blunders. Senator Domenici has been called Congress' chief apostle for nuclear power and in this book he shares his vision and passion for a renewed commitment, by this nation, and the rest of the world, to the dreams that nuclear energy can help us fulfill. It is also a book about what kind of world our grandchildren could inhabit if we fail in making and keeping such a commitment.
Republican Pete V. Domenici has been in the United States Senate representing the state of New Mexico since 1972, and is one of its most influential members. He has been called Congress's chief apostle for nuclear power. Dr. Julian J. Steyn is co-founder and principal of the Washington D.C. consulting firm, Energy Resources International, Inc. Blythe J.
