Political analysis must keep pace with rapidly changing, ever more complex international relations. This thesis suggests that a systematic study of the nuclear energy issue is one logical choice for comprehensive international political analysis. Nuclear power policies and debates are examined for their ability to reflect current international trends of conflict and cooperation. Nuclear-related events trigger responses over a wide range of issues, permitting an analyst to observe the various courses of national foreign policy in action. As one observes how nations interact in response to nuclear events, patterns are revealed, thus increasing one's knowledge of contemporary international relations. A paradigm is offered to systematize the analysis of nuclear-related events. A nuclear perspective is illustrated by examining worldwide trends on a global scale, European trends on a continental scale, and French foreign and domestic policies on a national scale. The nuclear power perspective serves as a valuable analytical tool with which to chart and interpret trends and events.
