Molten Salt Reactors and Thorium Energy (Woodhead Publishing Series in Energy) (英語) ハードカバー – イラスト付き, 2017/7/8
He developed three courses at the University of Missouri-Rolla on fusion research principles, fusion experiments, and fusion technology, where he also was awarded the Outstanding Teacher Award in 1975, 1979, 1981, 1984 and 1986. As well as the numerous academic positions he has held, he also has experience working in industry (Phillips Petroleum Company) on fusion research and other nuclear topics. As Head of the Physics Section of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) he helped facilitate international cooperation in fusion research, including organization of the semi-annual IAEA Fusion Energy Conferences. Since then he has taught courses on fusion research at the University of Illinois, in China, and in India.
Dolan’s primary research interests are concerned with molten salt fission reactors and nuclear fusion technology.
He is the editor of Magnetic Fusion Technology, published by Springer in 2014, and also contributed a chapter on “Nuclear Fusion for Springer’s Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology.

This book describes what we can do today, using the reactor President JFK's team had selected as the best for power plants. (The light water reactor was supposed to be limited to Submarines, for which it is excellent and safe.)
President Nixon came along and said "Wherever possible we should send the money to California" and America's chance to be carbon neutral by the year 2000 was dead. Now we have a lot of Coal CO2 in the atmosphere that we probably have to remove before humanity can be safe.
But we still can do it. Just a lot harder now.
The author's technical skills and writing skills are top notch.
Only comment on the downside I would make is that you also want to be aware of newer nuclear technology that stems from all the physics we learned in the last 60 years. But that doesn't take anything away from the subject of this book.
