Science Policy Reviews, Volume 4 Number 4.
Simons, Eugene M., Ed.
Presented in this quarterly publication are reviews, highlights, and 402 annotated bibliographic references from current and international literature in the area of science and public policy. The term "science" is used here to denote both engineering and technology as well as science. The literature reviewed includes books, reports, and periodical articles and focuses on matters of broad public policy; that of a highly technical and narrowly specialized nature is not covered. In addition to the bibliographic entries, this issue includes three articles: (1) "Whither Science and Technology?" a thought-provoking observation on the new look of today's scientific and technological climate; (2) "Influences on the Course of Science and Technology," an analysis of the forces exerted by society through industrial organizations, the Government, and the public, which are pushing the scientific/technological establishment; and (3) "Israel-Egypt Science Gap," an interpretation of observations gained from touring research facilities, written in the form of a treatise comparing Isreal's and Egypt's abilities to utilize science and technology for national purposes. Both an author index and a subject index to Volume Four are incorporated in this issue. (BL)
