Science, Technology, and National Policy.
Kuehn, Thomas J., Ed.; Porter, Alan L., Ed.
Relationships among science, technology, society, and policy makers are explored within this book. Readings were selected to focus primarily on technological policy rather than on science policy. More specifically, the book looks at technological change in relation to society and to American government. The readings are therefore oriented toward understanding the practical application of science and technology in order to expand the realm of human possibility. Part I provides some insight into the underlying social, political, economic, and international concerns in science and technology policy. Part II is an inquiry into the ways that various government institutions deal with science and technology, as well as aspects of citizen participation in the process. (Author/CS)
