[SR: 1459477], Paperback, [EAN: 9780813546889], Rutgers University Press, Rutgers University Press, Book, [PU: Rutgers University Press], 2009-08-04, Rutgers University Press, In today’s world of rapid advancements in science and technology, we need to scrutinize more than ever the historical forces that shape our perceptions of what these new possibilities can and cannot do for social progress. In Sputnik’s Shadow provides a lens to do just that, by tracing the rise and fall of the President’s Science Advisory Committee from its ascendance under Eisenhower in the wake of the Soviet launching of Sputnik to its demise during the Nixon years. Members of this committee shared a strong sense of technological skepticism; they were just as inclined to advise the president about what technology couldn’t do—for national security, space exploration, arms control, and environmental protection—as about what it could do.Zuoyue Wang examines key turning points during the twentieth century, including the beginning of the Cold War, the debates over nuclear weapons, the Sputnik crisis in 1957, the struggle over the Vietnam War, and the eventual end of the Cold War, showing how the involvement of scientists in executive policymaking evolved over time. Bringing new insights to the intellectual, social, and cultural histories of the era, this book not only depicts the drama of Cold War American science, it gives perspective to how we think about technological advan, 2585, Development & Growth, 2581, Economics, 3, Business & Money, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 5011, Military, 3568213011, Afghan War, 5012, Aviation, 1043892, Canada, 5015, Intelligence & Espionage, 387040011, Iraq War, 5016, Korean War, 16233491, Life & Institutions, 5017, Napoleonic Wars, 5018, Naval, 5019, Pictorials, 16244451, Prisoners of War, 16244121, Regiments, 5020, Strategy, 5021, Uniforms, 5022, United States, 5025, Vietnam War, 1043894, War of 1812, 5026, Weapons & Warfare, 5030, World War I, 5031, World War II, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 5035, World, 15812171, Civilization & Culture, 3825131, Expeditions & Discoveries, 4992, Jewish, 6343224011, Religious, 16244141, Slavery & Emancipation, 15812211, Women in History, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13871, History & Philosophy, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 684244011, Business Development, 468220, Business & Finance, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 684270011, Military, 468230, History, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 468216, Science & Mathematics, 491690, Agriculture, 491700, Astronomy & Astrophysics, 491702, Biology & Life Sciences, 491718, Chemistry, 491730, Earth Sciences, 684290011, Environmental Studies, 468218, Mathematics, 684291011, Mechanics, 491732, Physics, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
