Beyond the Laboratory : Scientists as Political Activists in 1930s America, Paperback / softback Book

Beyond the Laboratory : Scientists as Political Activists in 1930s America Paperback / softback

Description

The debate over scientists' social responsibility is a topic of great controversy today.

Peter J. Kuznick here traces the origin of that debate to the 1930s and places it in a context that forces a reevaluation of the relationship between science and politics in twentieth-century America.

Kuznick reveals how an influential segment of the American scientific community during the Depression era underwent a profound transformation in its social values and political beliefs, replacing a once-pervasive conservatism and antipathy to political involvement with a new ethic of social reform.
