"Interested in the 'science' of science policy? Read this Handbook. Contributing academicians and practitioners provide their perspectives, questions, and considerations on the theoretical underpinnings; data required; budget process; political design rules; policy analogues; and international context of this emerging field of study. It'll get you thinking."--Connie K. N. Chang, former Chief of Staff and Research Director to the Under Secretary for Technology, former Technology Administration "U.S. Department of Commerce "
"In this volume, many of the nation's foremost science policy scholars make the case for a more rational decision process to guide federal research funding, arguing that 'science for science policy' is a prerequisite. It is not clear that all federal policymakers are open to a rational process. But, the arguments in this book are, indeed, compelling and will certainly propel discussions on this matter."--Neal Lane, Rice University "Former Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy and of the National Science Foundation "
"The handbook is designed for policy planners and business school students. Recommended."--J. S. Schwartz "CHOICE "
"The editors have assembled a distinguished, interdisciplinary group of scholars who carefully and expertly map out a broader research agenda on this important topic. The end result is a lucid and insightful volume. This is a 'must read' for anyone interested in the public policy implications of innovation."--Donald S. Siegel, Dean and Professor, School of Business "University at Albany, SUNY "
