Summary

First published in 1982. Recognizing that science and technology have become increasingly relevant to important public policy issues, Congress has mandated the periodic preparation of a “Five Year Outlook for Science and Technology” to help U.S. policymakers anticipate and deal with these issues more effectively. This book, the result of a study conducted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science for the second such “Outlook,” identifies and explores domestic and international policy concerns in which science and technology are critical factors. The authors’ interdisciplinary, nontechnical approach provides policymakers, students and others interested in science, technology and public affairs with a timely overview of nine areas that are likely to become the world’s most pressing concerns over the years.
