We Are All Harrisburg’: Three Mile Island and the Ultimate Indivisibility of the Atom1

Abstract : This article discusses the impact on U.S. nuclear policies of the incident at the Three Mile Island reactor in Pennsylvania in March 1979 by focusing on three interrelated issues: the inescapable connection between the civilian and the military dimensions of the nuclear power; the effective mobilization from below against nuclear energy in 1970s’ America and the ability of anti-nuclear groups to appeal across the political and cultural spectrum; and how the political and cultural transformations of the 1970s challenged the certainties of the previous decades and hindered the development of nuclear energy.
