Science, Industry and the State presents the factors that have influenced the pace and pattern of industrial growth of United Kingdom. This book discusses the triangular relationship among science industry, and state.

Organized into six chapters, this book begins with an overview of the complex pattern of innovation in the pharmaceutical industry, which can be compared with the effects of ecology and evolution on natural history. This text then describes the situation that arises when conventional methods of economic analysis are used to explore basic economic problems as pricing and profits in science-based industry. Other chapters consider the role of commercial marketing techniques in scientific progress. This book discusses as well the economic and social problems within an industrial environment. The final chapter deals with the scientific evolvement of modern industry that has produced a series of economic and social repercussions.

This book is a valuable resource for economists and industrial scientists.
