Fast Reactors and Fast Breeder Reactors

Hello,

Can anyone recommend some resources for learning about the historical development of FBR's or on FBR R&D from a broad perspective? I've pulled down a number of journal articles but I'd like something more general to help be keep a sense of perspective.

I have found some (for example http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=how-do-fast-breeder-react), but suggestions from others are often more useful than a google search.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Ok, I found a couple along the lines of what I'm looking for:

C.P. Zaleski. "Overview of future and development of fast neutron reactors." Energy, 23,7, 571, 1998.

M. Simnad. "Overview of fast breeder reactors." Energy, 23, 7, 523, 1998.

If you have some fundamentals in nuclear engineering, I recommend a book THERMAL ANALYSIS OF LIQUID METAL FAST BREEDER REACTOR.
And there are some materials in IAEA fast reactor database, such as Russian BN-XXs, French Phoenix and Super Phoenix, American EBR-II ect.

Update - just adding some references on fast reactors since the topic comes up periodically.
