Product Overview

"An original and pathbreaking work that seems destined to alter fundamentally the context of discussions about the future of science and technology policy in the United States. Hart's thorough research in primary sources and novel conceptual structure remove the subject from its isolated corner and bring it into the mainstream of political science and policy studies."---Harvey Brooks, Benjamin Peirre professor of Technology and Public Policy Emeritus, Harvard University

"This book deserves high marks for the power of its conceptualization, the depth and breadth of the underlying research, the grace and intelligence with which it is written, the penetrating quality of its analysis, and the skill and learning with which it relates its findings to relevant bodies of existing scholarship. It was exciting and provocative to read and will have an important impact on future studies of political and technological development."---Ellis Hawley, Professor Emerias, University of Iova

"This is a subtly argued work well versed in the existing literature and deeply immersed in the historical sources. The author's balance between theory and narrative will be attractive both to political scientists and to historians, and the book does a fine job of using history to inform current policy."---Kenneth Lipertuo, University of Houston
