Product Details


“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.”
Bern Dibner Professor of the History of Science and Technology
President, Society for the History of Technology Program

Author of Retooling: A Historian Confronts Technological Change

“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.”

Professor at Virginia Tech
Author of Technology and Transformation in the American Electric Utility Industry
