Pope (American history, U. of Oregon, Eugene) has written a compelling account of the memorable and influential WPPSS disaster, when a plan to build five nuclear power plants in Washington State ended in bond default and years of legal battles. Drawing on years of research, Pope reconstructs the story of WPPSS against a background of American energy policy, economics, and needs in the 1970s and 1980s. The lessons to be drawn from the fiasco are illuminated through detailed attention to all sides of the story, a chapter on sociological theories of construction management demonstrating weaknesses in large infrastructure projects, and the epilogue, which ties the lessons of WPPSS into issues of energy policy that are all too current now.
