    The Atom Beseiged

    Extraparlimentary Dissent in France and Germany

    Dorothy Nelkin and Michael Pollak

    How the social and political differences between France and Germany contributed to the success or failure of recent antinuclear movements.

    Broadly based antinuclear movements made their voices heard in both France and Germany in recent years. In France, the movement had virtually no effect. In Germany, it imposed a moratorium on nuclear power development. This study of the social and political differences between the two countries explains why.
