Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very well thought out analysis of the history and current issues in U.S. science policy. There are certainly minor claims that might be disputed, such as that the current Congressional processes of funding science were established by specific design (as opposed to the end consequences of larger scale policies); but the reader is continually pressed to consider the issues and form judgments for her/himself. The history is well detailed without excessive burdening, and the analyses are thorough but remain on topic, alleviating the side discussions that might otherwise threaten discussions of such large topics as U.S. science policy.
A wonderful introduction to the current state of affairs and their origins.

I was assigned this book in graduate school (international affairs concentrating in science and technology policy) and found it to be a great resource. I found it to be a very quick and easy read, especially for an academic piece. It was very clear, concise, and informative. It is a wonderful text that contributed to a great class, and I kept it for my personal collection.
