Abstract

In 1979, provoked by the Three Mile Island nuclear accident, governors of states hosting disposal facilities for low-level radioactive waste refused to accept additional shipments. This title provides coverage of this opposition, testing hypotheses regarding movement mobilization and opposition strategy by analyzing the qualities of activism.
