Abstract:

The readership of physicists, chemists, biologists and engineers to which this testy collection might appeal is too large to confine the book to the niche of science-fiction. Campbell's loudly voiced and intriguing views on such subjects as Krebiozen, life on other planets, the medical profession, segregation, slums, and nearly every other aspect of the physical universe have shocked and singed the sensibilities of his devotees for twenty-eight years. The best way for the general reader to approach his original mind is via the pieces on politics and society--both subjects are treated scientifically and the results are disturbing but true. Once the reader is hooked, he might even begin to consider the more insular of Campbell's concerns. --Kirkus Reviews, 1966.
