Summary

An Illusion of Protection includes a critique of the international nuclear safeguards system. It deals in particular with the proposed sale of Australian uranium to China. The report is an extremely valuable and topical one. It comes at a time when the world is on the brink of a rapid expansion of the use of nuclear-power reactors for the generation of electricity Exporters of uranium, of which Australia is one of the largest, have the power to determine the extent and nature of any nuclear renaissance.
