Science Development: Toward the Building of Science in Less Developed Countries.
Moravcsik, Michael J.
In this publication, those elements of science development required by even the simplest model of scientific method - education, manpower development, communications, research instruction, organizational matters, and international connections - are discussed. The book is concerned with the deliberate and systematic development of scientific capability in developing countries. The author, a physicist, hopes to convince his readers that science development has been neglected and to suggest very specific ideas which, if implemented, would help to remedy this apparent neglect. The book is presented as a summary of the state of the art in science development - a collection, distillation, and generalization of an accumulated body of experience. A list of 500 publications on various aspects of science development, many of which are summarized in the text, is included. (Author/EB)
