Shelanski, Vivien, Ed.; Blanpied, William A., Ed.
This newsletter presents a summary of important, but little publicized, issues involving the National Science Foundation. In addition, it also contains a timetable of impending actions to be taken by congressional committees, and a list of documents and articles where additional information can be found. In addition to the regular sections, News Items and the continuing Bibliography, this issue contains an essay and bibliography, "Literature of the Law-Science Confrontation, 1965-1975," prepared under the direction of Morris L. Cohen, Harvard Law School. This is the fourth in the series of original essays on special aspects of science, ethics, and public understanding to appear in this publication. Results of a reader survey are published. Future plans for the Newsletter are presented. (Editors/EB)
