Kalra, Saurabh Sharma, Anoop Singh. The book formulates a theory of nuclear socio-political economy which highlights six factors necessary for embarking on nuclear power programs: (1) national security and secrecy, (2) technocratic ideology, (3) economic interventionism, (4) a centrally coordinated energy stakeholder network, (5) subordination of opposition to political authority, and (6) social by: 'Professor Lévêque’s book is an excellent choice for inquiring minds looking for a fresh approach to the economics of nuclear power.
