"...highly recommend this book to all those involved in fusion research, administration, and policy. It is well written, in an engaging style, while also being unusually candid and thorough. Well-done and thanks, Bill Stacey." -- 21st Century Science & Technology

More About the Author

Weston M. Stacey is a research physicist, Professor of Nuclear Engineering at Georgia Tech, and author of leading textbooks on nuclear fusion and nuclear reactor physics. From 1979-88 he led the IAEA INTOR Workshop (documented in his history "The Quest for a Fusion Energy Reactor") which led to the ITER project in which Europe, Japan, the USA, Russia, China, S. Korea and India are collaborating to build the first experimental fusion power reactor (to operate in the 2020s). He is a Fellow of the American Nuclear Society and of the American Physical Society. The history of his family, who were among the early settlers of Georgia, and of his own rise from a childhood of hunting and fishing in rural south Georgia to become an internationally recognized applied nuclear physicist, is documented in his memoir "From Midway Church to Nuclear Fusion".

Format: Hardcover
For those concerned about our energy sources in the years to come, this book is an important read. Written so most people can understand, the book recounts complex efforts of representatives of diverse nations over a period of 20 or so years in bringing about the reality of a Fusion Energy Reactor. When fusion energy is a way of life in the years ahead, this book will be a classic, in my opinion. The international makeup of the members of INTOR overcame practical and political problems to reach a successful solution in the development of a reactor. As our fossil fuels deplete over the next 30 years or so, fusion energy may be man's salvation for civilized living. Then, if not before, this book will be greatly valued as a historic account of the successful venture.
