The advisers : scientists in the policy process by Bruce L. R Smith( Book )
9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 575 libraries worldwide
America's governing system is unique in the extent to which scientists and other outside experts participate in the policy process. No other nation uses these experts so extensively, not merely for advice on the allocation of resources to science but also in broad policy issues. This wide-ranging study traces the rise of scientists in the policy process and shows how outside experts interrelate with politicians and administrators to produce a unique and dynamic policy process. It also shows how the very openness of American government creates the potential for unusual conflicts of interest. Bruce Smith focuses on the experience of agency and presidential-level advisory systems over the past several decades. He chronicles the special complexities and challenges resulting from the Federal Advisory Committee Act--the "open meeting" law--to provide a better understanding of the role of advisory committees and offers valuable lessons to guide their future use. He looks at science advice in the Departments of Defense, State, and Energy, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and the Environmental Protection Agency, and then examines how science advisory mechanisms have worked at the White House. Rather than simply providing a description of structures and institutions, Smith shows the advisory systems in action--how advisory systems work or fail to work in practice. He analyzes how the advisers influence the policymaking process and affect the life of the agencies they serve. Smith concludes with an assessment of the relationship between science advice and American democracy. He explains that the widespread use of outside advisers clearly reflects America's preference for pluralism. By scrutinizing agency plans, goals, and operations, advisers and advisory committees serve a variety of functions and attempt to strike a balance between openness and citizen access to government and the need for discipline and sophisticated expertise in policymaking. At the root of the advisory process is a paradox: scientists are called on because of their special expertise, but they are useful only if they learn to play by the rules of the political game. The challenge to the nation is to reconcile the integrity of science with the norms of democracy

The state of academic science : the universities in the nation's research effort by Bruce L. R Smith( Book )
14 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 472 libraries worldwide
Presented is a National Science Foundation (nsf) sponsored report on a study of the university role in continuing basic research in the United States. The study, designed to provide a basis for future governmental policy formation, examined the critical question: How can the intellectual power and social benefits of the research enterprise in the nation's universities be preserved? The study grew from the apparent paradox that while university enrollment and research funding have declined sharply, there is no shortage of scientists and scientific advancement appears to be continuing unimpaired from the levels of the 1950's and 1960's when basic research was highly funded. The report resolves the apparent paradox in revealing that there is a lag of several years between initiation of experiments and disclosure of findings. Thus, current success in scientific research appears to be the fruit of the support provided years earlier. If continued success is to be maintained years in the future, total support of the sciences and research must be maintained today. (Sl)

Be brave in the face of the unknown.

Although the final volume to be written, The Deerslayer is the first in the chronology of Natty Bumppo's life, depicting the character as a young man testing himself in the wilderness, and against enemies, for the first time. Set in the 1740's just as the French and Indian wars have begun, the novel opens as Natty Bumppo&#151;known as Deerslayer&#151;and his friend Hurry Harry travel to Tom Hutter's house in upstate New York. Hurry plans to marry Tom's beautiful daughter Judith, while Deerslayer has come to help his close friend Chingachgook save his bride-to-be, Wah-ta-Wah, from the Huron Indians. When war breaks out, and Hurry and Tom are captured by Indians, Deerslayer must go on his first warpath to rescue them. One of the earliest novels to be considered truly &#147;American, The Deerslayer is a masterpiece of suspense, adventure, and romance.Bruce L. R.
