Search for the Ultimate Energy Source: A History of the U.S. Fusion Energy Program, by Fusion Power Associates' president Stephen O. Dean, explains the fundamentals behind fusion power and traces the development of fusion by decade—covering its history as dictated by US government policies, its major successes, and its prognosis for the future.
