Goals in Space
Goals in Space (August 1991)
American Values and the Future of Technology
William Sims Bainbridge - Author

“This book is not merely about 'goals in space:' It is really a much broader work than that. It sets a fine example of the way in which research should be done on public opinion concerning policy issues and especially concerning those policy issues which give rise to social movements. Bainbridge has developed a highly innovative and creative approach, analyzing the space movement within the same general frame of reference commonly use...(Read More)
Peerless Science
Peerless Science (July 1990)
Peer Review and U. S. Science Policy
Daryl E. Chubin - Author
Edward J. Hackett - Author

"Peer review is the principle on which the internal governance system of science has traditionally depended.
