Graham Loren :
Loren Graham is Professor Emeritus of the History of Science at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
An excellent guide to the 20-Century Soviet Union because of the special role that science has played in the society.
A very fresh and innovative analysis of the interaction between science and the political system.
It is a testament to Loren R. Graham's expertise in Soviet science and technology, and a measure of the enormous task he has set himself, that in Science and the Soviet Social Order--the first book to undertake both a comprehensive history of the subject and an analysis of the ways in which science and technology have interacted with Soviet culture at large--he has chosen to confine himself to an introductory overview and leave commentary on particular fields to scholars who specialize in them. The essays that result--the fruit of a four-year-long colloquy--offer in prodigious and fascinating detail a social history of Soviet genetics, ecology, nuclear physics, space, and communications and computer science.
