Product Details

Praise

“Charting decades of pitched battles over relevance, accountability, and bias, Mark Solovey brilliantly illuminates the political economy of recent American social science. This is a compelling — and troubling — account of the linked fates of science policy and postwar public culture.”
– Sarah E. Igo, Andrew Jackson Professor of History, Vanderbilt University

“This is the goto history tracing erratic NSF treatment of social science, which accounts for worrisome gaps in our science of the human dimensions embedded in current sociotechnological disruptive challenges. Solovey’s call for a fix is timely, and urgent.”
– Kenneth Prewitt, Carnegie Professor of Public Affairs, Columbia University
