Description

Technology Unbound: Transferring Scientific and Engineering Resources from Defense to Civilian Purposes talks about the reallocation of U.S. military resources for use in the civilian sector. The title analyzes implications of the resource adjustment to the U.S. economy. The text first covers the interplay between science, military, and economy. In the second chapter, the selection deals with the impact of the resource reallocation to industries, communities, scientists, and engineers. The next chapter details the needs of the U.S. civilian sector. The last chapter presents the prospects for adjustment. The book will be of great interest to military and government officials, economists, and political scientists.
