Abstract:

"This volume presents examples of the important contributions of several of the natural sciences and of their related technologies. The primary purpose of the contributors has been to offer to the lay reader an untechnical account of the nature of certain methods and their practical relations to military problems. The editor and every contributor has held clearly in mind the importance of acquainting the public with scientific progress and with typical examples of the dependence of industrial advances upon the development of science. The roles of physical science, chemistry, earth sciences, engineering, biology, medicine, and psychology are discussed"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved).
