The science matrix: the journey, travails, triumphs
"Seitz Presents a sophisticated, balanced, and practical analysis of the relationship between science and society with a verbal parsimony that some.. might well emulate. Both scientists and literate nonscientists will find this book an easy read that is informative, and intellectually stimulating on a subject that all of us should be thinking about." "Interdisciplinary Science Reviews""The book is recommended for all considering a career in the natural sciences as well as for their mentors. It should be required reading for policy makers in science, both academic and governmental. Laymen with an interest in science will enjoy and benefit from this concise and readable history of science" "American Scientist "
