Editorial Reviews

Review


"[Kay's] description of the establishment of this biology and her analysis of its implications represent an important contribution to our understanding of the social role of science in the late twentieth century." --
The Historian


"As a contribution to the history of the American involvement in molecular biology, Kay's book is a work of considerable value, and it is written with clarity and intelligence." --
Science


From the Back Cover

The organizational history of Caltech is the loom on which Kay has woven an intricate fabric of the molecular vision of life.
