Homer A. Neal, Tobin L. Smith, and Jennifer B. McCormick have written a landmark work calling for a national effort to restore .

Homer A. McCormick have written a landmark work calling for a national effort to restore our nation's power in the fields of science, energy, and education, as we did in the remarkable year following Sputnik. The next president should read Beyond Sputnik and accept this call to action as did President Eisenhower.

Science and technology are responsible for almost every advance in our modern quality of life. Yet science isn't just about laboratories, telescopes and particle accelerators. Beyond Sputnik is a comprehensive survey of the field for use as an introductory textbook in courses and a reference guide for legislators, scientists, journalists, and advocates seeking to understand the science policy-making process. The next preident should read Beyond Sputnik and accept this call to action as did President Eisenhower. -Ambassador David M. Abshire, President of the Center for the Study of the Presidency, Cofounder and Vice Chairman of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and President of the Richard Lounsbery Foundation.

Science Policy in the Twenty-First Century. by Homer Alfred Neal,Tobin Smith,Jen McCormick. by Homer Alfred Neal, Tobin Smith, Jen McCormick.

Science and technology are responsible for almost every advance in our modern quality of life. Yet science isn't just about laboratories, telescopes and particle accelerators. Public policy exerts a huge impact on how the scientific community conducts its work. Beyond Sputnik is a comprehensive survey of the field for use as an introductory textbook in courses and a reference guide for legislators, scientists, journalists, and advocates seeking to understand the science policy-making process. Detailed case studies---on topics from cloning and stem cell research to homeland security and science education---offer readers the opportunity to study real instances of policymaking at work. Authors and experts Homer A. Neal, Tobin L. Smith, and Jennifer B. McCormick propose practical ways to implement sound public policy in science and technology and highlight how these policies will guide the results of scientific discovery for years to come.

Homer A. Neal is the Samuel A. Goudsmit Distinguished University Professor of Physics, Interim President Emeritus, and Vice President for Research Emeritus at the University of Michigan, and is a former member of the U.S. National Science Board.

Tobin L. Smith is Associate Vice President for Federal Relations at the Association of American Universities. He was formerly Assistant Director of the University of Michigan and MIT Washington, DC, offices.

Jennifer B. McCormick is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Ethics in the Division of General Internal Medicine at the Mayo College of Medicine in Rochester, Minnesota, and is the Associate Director of the Research Ethics Resource, part of the Mayo Clinic's NIH Clinical Translational Science Award research programs.

"Beyond Sputnik is a readable, concise, yet remarkably comprehensive introduction to contemporary science policy. It is devoid of 'wonkishness' yet serves the needs of policymakers and students alike. Because science and technology policy is of central importance in the twenty-first century this accessible volume is a godsend."---Charles M. Vest, President of the National Academy of Engineering and Vice Chair of the National Research Council of the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering

"This highly researched book is a treasure trove for anyone concerned with science policy relating to such challenges as providing energy, preserving the environment, assuring healthcare, creating jobs, and more."---Norman Augustine, retired Chairman and CEO of Lockheed Martin Corporation and recipient of the 2008 Vannevar Bush Award from the National Science Board

"Science policy is a subject of growing importance in the United States, yet there has long been a vacuum among textbooks in the field. Beyond Sputnik fills it splendidly and will be greeted with enthusiasm by students and faculty alike. Even those who have practiced the art for years will learn from it."---Albert Teich, Director of Science and Policy Programs at the American Association for the Advancement of Science

"Homer A. Neal, Tobin L. Smith, and Jennifer B. McCormick have written a landmark work calling for a national effort to restore our nation's power in the fields of science, energy, and education, as we did in the remarkable year following Sputnik.

Abshire, President of the Center for the Study of the Presidency, Cofounder and Vice Chairman of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and President of the Richard Lounsbery Foundation

"At last we have a text that tells the story from where A. Hunter Dupree left off; an excellent core text for courses in science and technology policy, DC policymakers, and anyone who needs to get up to speed in the field . . . The book that we have all been waiting for."---Christopher T. Hill, Professor of Public Policy and Technology, George Mason University

Very well thought out analysis of the history and current issues in U.S. science policy. There are certainly minor claims that might be disputed, such as that the current Congressional processes of funding science were established by specific design (as opposed to the end consequences of larger scale policies); but the reader is continually pressed to consider the issues and form judgments for her/himself. The history is well detailed without excessive burdening, and the analyses are thorough but remain on topic, alleviating the side discussions that might otherwise threaten discussions of such large topics as U.S. science policy.
A wonderful introduction to the current state of affairs and their origins.

I was assigned this book in graduate school (international affairs concentrating in science and technology policy) and found it to be a great resource. I found it to be a very quick and easy read, especially for an academic piece. It was very clear, concise, and informative. It is a wonderful text that contributed to a great class, and I kept it for my personal collection.

Great textbook!
Narim
Slightly dated but otherwise an excellent book.
Forey
This book is a let down. Lots of misinformation in here as well. If you want a history lesson it's a good book.
Global Progression
This is an excellent textbook in a field that has no other textbook available. This one does a very good job at providing the background on this topic. I use it in my class and the students enjoy it, too.
