  1. The following book, written by a longtime nuclear industry engineer, portrays the technology, political and social aspects of the US nuclear power industry within a story of intrigue: "Rad Decision: A Novel of Nuclear Power." The plant described is roughly the same design as the Fukushima plants and at one point experiences the same type of problem (station blackout). It is available free at http://RadDecision.blogspot.com
