Written by the former president of the Taiwan Power Company, this book describes Taiwan's dramatic progress in the production of electricity since World War II, much of it attributable to nuclear power. Discussion of the environmental and socioeconomic impacts of power development and electrification on an emerging nation, details of the power systems, and an entire chapter on the development of nuclear power make this book interesting reading for both those in the nuclear utility field and those with an interest in the historical development of this East Asian country.
