Muria proposal historical materials

Muria proposal historical materials


There is as yet no full-length length historical study of Indonesian nuclear development since the 1950s. However, there are several useful studies of particular phases. Poneman (1982) is indispensable and detailed on the early phases. McSorley (1992) is useful on the 1980s developments, as is the Laksono et al (1993) bibliography. Laksono et al (1995) and Kurniawan et al (1996) provide valuable information for the mid-1990s Muria peninsula proposal, including useful local site studies. The official Batan account is limited.
