    Downloadable pdf's on Nuclear Science - Nuclear Chemistry and Nuclear Energy.

    http://pc29.nc.chalmers.se/KAPITEL/CONTENT.HTM [Broken]

    Origin of Nuclear Science
    Nuclei, Isotopes and Isotope Separation
    Nuclear Mass and Stability
    Unstable Nuclei and Radioactive Decay
    Radionuclides in Nature
    Absorption of Nuclear Radiation
    Radiation Effects on Matter
    Detection and Measurement Techniques
    Uses of Radioactive Tracers
    Cosmic Radiation and Elementary Particles
    Nuclear Structure
    Energetics of Nuclear Reactions
    Particle Accelerators
    Mechanics and Models of Nuclear Reactions
    Production of Radionuclides
    The Transuranium Elements
    Thermonuclear Reactions: the Beginning and the Future
    Radiation Biology and Radiation Protection
    Principles of Nuclear Power
    Nuclear Power Reactors
    Nuclear Fuel Cycle
    Behavior of Radionuclides in the Environment

    It is a bit dated and contains some old information that is not necessarily representative of nuclear power systems today.
