Reviews

This compilation... promotes incorporating scientific and technical solutions to intractable problems through research, activism, and communication. The editors' goal is to rebuild trust in the scientific method in the service of the public good. Radical indeed.

--Choice Reviews

[A]n important contribution to the growing body of literature on the history of science and technology in the 1970s... Students of modern U.S. history or of the long 1960s or 1970s will find it useful as evidence of how deeply Americans of the New Left were engaged in global political debates and of how diverse the countercultural sentiments of those decades were.

--Isis: A Journal of the History of Science
