The computer revolution originated largely in the U.S. Much of the funding for early computer science has come from the U.S. government. Funding a Revolution shows the interactions among players in academic circles, government and industry. It is fitting that benefits of the computer revolution accrue to the U.S. Federal, State and Municipal governments in delivering services to citizens, to U.S. citizens, and to the U.S. economy in productivity gains, job growth, and the growth of the computing industry. Individual scientific achievement, and government and corporate support, are instrumental for developments in large scale integrated circuit computers, packet switching and the Internet, relational databases, the personal computer, speech recognition, computer graphics, GIS, cryptography and computer security. Funding a Revolution is extremely well written, by many contributors. I recommend it for self-education or classroom education.
