KIRKUS REVIEW

In their own words, drawn from the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, scientists view national and international issues in which this elite is directly implicated, as well as those of ""the long haul---the impact of science on man and society... the relations between science and other spiritual and material forces... "" Many famous figures are represented in the symposium (Einstein, Szilard, Oppenheimer, Bertrand Russell, Teller, etc., etc.) and the material ranges over the many side-effects of the scientific revolution-- some moral- some specific (control, deterrence, test bans, down to loyalty and security problems). A very generous (640 pages) representation of unquestionable value to both the scientist and the informed layman.
