SCIENCE REMAKES OUR WORLD

A survey of new frontiers, as governmental, industrial and educational laboratories collaborate to further knowledge and advance progress. It covers chemistry explosives, fuel, plastics, fabrics, rubber, vitamins, metals, glass, electrons, radio, television, film, sound, atoms and power, shows what the farm contributes to science, what science has contributed to cures. It outlines research programs, present and future, indicates lines of development, it underlines how war-inspired developments will have important applications in future times of peace, it stresses limitations and lacks and what is being done to supplement depleted stores of raw materials. Enlightening -- and in view of many books along similar lines, this seems to present a panoramic view of the entire field.
