Pasteur's Quadrant

£12.99

Product description

Over fifty years ago, Vannevar Bush released his enormously influential report, Science, the Endless Frontier , which asserted a dichotomy between basic and applied science. This view was at the core of the compact between government and science that led to the golden age of scientific research after World War II - a compact that is currently under severe stress. In this book, Donald Stokes challenges Bush's view and maintains that we can only rebuild the relationship between government and the scientific community when we understand what is wrong with that view.
The softback cover of this copy is a little worn but otherwise sound. The binding is in good condition. The pages appear clean and unmarked.
Published 1997.
