Business of the Bomb: The Modern Nuclear Marketplace

The people at American RadioWorks don't shy away from difficult or controversial topics, and one of their latest documentaries takes on the rather touchy subject of the modern nuclear marketplace. On the site dedicated to the documentary, visitors can listen to the entire program, and even follow along with a transcript. While many still imagine this marketplace run by terrorists attempting to move nuclear bombs and devices across the world, this portrait is actually inaccurate. Among the many interesting and revealing aspects of this documentary is the fact that much of the nuclear bomb business now conducted by those rather white-collar in orientation. The site also includes a number of short essays on the nuclear power renaissance and the American Atoms for Peace program. The documentary is fascinating, and it could be effectively used in a political science or international relations course.
