Physics in Perspective: Recommendations and Program Emphases.
National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Washington, DC. Physics Survey Committee.
This report is excerpted from a much more extensive volume, entitled PHYSICS IN PERSPECTIVE, VOLUME 1, the final report of the Physics Survey Committee. The Physics Survey Committee was appointed by the President of the National Academy of Sciences in mid-1969 and charged with an examination of the status, opportunities, and problems of physics in the United States. In addition to the study of physics as such, the committee has attempted to place physics in perspective in U.S. society. The committee has evolved an approach to the establishment of priorities and program emphases that may have wider potential utilization; it has carried out studies on education in physics and physics in education, on the production and utilization of physics manpower, and on the dissemination and consolidation of physics information. The report lists recommendations and establishes priorities and program emphases. (BT)
