Compton, Karl T. Trullinger, Robert W. Bush, Vannevar.  
Scientists Face the World of 1942. Essays by Karl T. Compton, Robert W. Trullinger, Vannevar Bush.

Publisher: New Brunswick, Rutgers Univ. Press, 1942.
80 p., 23.5 cm. "Dr. Compton, president of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, integrates the fundamental sciences of physics, chemistry, and biology as they are applied to engineering at a time when the nation mobilizes its scientific resources for a great defense effort. Dr. Bush, the biological engineer, discusses the philosophy and the technique of this new field of applied science and demonstrates how fortunate it is that the problems of food, health, and clothing which are acute in times of war have now become the subjects of an entire field of scientific inquiry. Dr. Trullinger, the agricultural engineer, describes how the well-known principles of engineering may be applied to the complex phenomena of the farm provided intelligent deviation from orthodoxy prevails. Commentaries on the three essays are contributed by Harvey N. Davis, Detlev Bronk, and S. W. Fletcher." Dj edges worn, spine darkened; VG. stock#20722.

Dyson, Freeman J., b. 1923  
The Sun, the Genome, and the Internet: Tools of Scientific Revolutions
 Picture
Publisher: NY, Oxford University Press, 1999.
xvi, 124 p.; 22 cm. Based on a series of lectures at the NYPL. "In this visionary look into the future, Freeman Dyson argues that technological changes fundamentally alter our ethical and social arrangements and that three rapidly advancing new technologies-- solar energy, genetic engineering, and worldwide communication-- together have the potential to create a more equal distribution of the world's wealth." "Written with passionate conviction about the ethical uses of science, 'The Sun, the Genome, and the Internet' is both a brilliant reinterpretation of the scientific process and a challenge to use new technologies to close, rather than widen, the gap between rich and poor."
