Editorial Reviews

Review

"...an informative and lively account of the history and growth of a worldwide, surprisingly unpoliticized, research effort." Trenton Times

"Herman, a former New York Times reporter, has done an excellent job of explaining how politics has repeatedly shaped the nation's efforts to develop nuclear fusion. She is a good storyteller and has woven together many fascinating anecdotes about the bright and bizarre characters who have sought to tame the fury of the sun." The Philadelphia Inquirer

"...an intriguing contemporary history of science as an integrated field of endeavor..." San Francisco Chronicle

" ...a readable and at times exciting account of fusion research from the point of view of a nonspecialist and aimed at the general reader." Philip Davenport, Nature

Book Description

Using the personal recollections of the scientists involved, this book traces the little-known international race to build the first atomic fusion reactor that began during the Cold War in secret laboratories in the USA, Britain and the Soviet Union, and evolved into an astonishing collaboration between East and West.
