Reviews
succinct and devastating... It should be required reading in the Kremlin.--Joshua Lustig, Current History--

This short, engaging book will please not only historians of science and technology, who know Graham's work well, but anyone interested in the social and economic conditions favorable to cultivating new, globally competitive industries.

--Chronicle of Higher Education--

Lonely Ideas is an excellent, brief overview of the qualified successes and costly failures involved in Russian modernization. It should become the standard volume for introducing lay readers to the growing field fo Russian science and technology studies.
