Science and American Foreign Relations since World War II, Paperback / softback Book

Science and American Foreign Relations since World War II Paperback / softback

Part of the Cambridge Studies in US Foreign Relations series

Description

The sciences played a critical role in American foreign policy after World War II.

From atomic energy and satellites to the green revolution, scientific advances were central to American diplomacy in the early Cold War, as the United States leveraged its scientific and technical pre-eminence to secure alliances and markets.

The growth of applied research in the 1970s, exemplified by the biotech industry, led the United States to promote global intellectual property rights.

Priorities shifted with the collapse of the Soviet Union, as attention turned to information technology and environmental sciences.

Today, international relations take place within a scientific and technical framework, whether in the headlines on global warming and the war on terror or in the fine print of intellectual property rights.

Science and American Foreign Relations since World War II provides the historical background necessary to understand the contemporary geopolitics of science.
