Remember 3 Mile Island? This began a serious discussion of radiation, nuclear power, and safety. This book was published a few years after and probably was a slam dunk as a library purchase in the 1980s. At the time of this writing, this book was circulating. The book also had an RFID tag affixed so I can only imagine the holding library felt that it was worth keeping into the mid 1990s, as that is when the library automated.
