“In the past half century, science and technology policy have become part of general politics in the United States and vice versa. This book shows how and why they converged. It manages the feat of being a comprehensive introductory text and also a provocative analysis that will engage scholars and general readers alike.”

“From the Cold War to cold fusion and beyond, this highly readable and insightful primer describes how the government came to depend on scientists and technologists—and how scientists came to depend on the government.”
