This issue contains usual features of an annotated bibliography related to science and society and a general news and communications section. The remainder of the publication focuses on the interaction of science and ethics, both within the academic community and without, among scientists and non-scientists alike. One section consists of brief descriptions of a sampling of academic programs and courses covering topics in the science-technology-values area. An essay, "Science, Objectivity, and Moral Values," by Dr. Bernard D. Davis, is found in another section. In this issue, bibliography entries have been listed alphabetically, with items pertaining more specifically to the ethical implications of science and technology marked by an asterisk. (Editors/EB)
