Andrei Sakharov: Soviet Physics, Nuclear Weapons, and Human Rights
by Gennady Gorelik
Publisher: American Institute of Physics 2005
Andrei Sakharov, the father of the Soviet Union's hydrogen bomb, went on to struggle for human rights, peace and democracy, sacrificing his high position for exile and repression. His remarkable pilgrimage is explained by his biographer and illuminated with rare photos.

While the focus of the study is on the TPX and alternate concepts, it also provides a history of the overall fusion energy program. With this context, the study identifies (but does not answer) some underlying questions that must be addressed.
