Science in Russia and the Soviet Union by Loren R. Graham

Book Description

By the 1980s the Soviet scientific establishment had become the largest in the world, but very little of its history was known in the West. What has been needed for many years in order to fill that gap in our knowledge is a history of Russian and Soviet science written for the educated person who would like to read one book on the subject. This book has been written for that reader. The history of Russian and Soviet science is a story of remarkable achievements and frustrating failures. That history is presented here in a comprehensive form, and explained in terms of its social and political context. Major sections include the tsarist period, the impact of the Russian Revolution, the relationship between science and Soviet society, and the strengths and weaknesses of individual scientific disciplines. The book also discusses the changes brought to science in Russia and other republics by the collapse of communism in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Science in the New Russia by Loren R. Graham Science in the New Russia, Paperback (May 2008)

The Russian science establishment was one of the largest in the world, boasting many Nobel prizes, a world-leading space programme, and schools in mathematics, and physics. This book tells the story of the near collapse of Russian science and of subsequent domestic and international efforts to reform and re-energize scientific activity in Russia.

Recounts the experiences of the author during his 45 years of travelling and researching in the Soviet Union and post-Soviet Russia, from 1960 to 2005. This book also talks about the ethical questions he confronted, such as the tension between independence of thought and political loyalty. It is intended for the readers with an interest in Russia.

Face in the Rock by Loren R. Graham Face in the Rock, Paperback (August 1998)

Grand Island lies off the south shore of Lake Superior. It was once home to a sizable community of Chippewa Indians who lived in harmony with the land and with each other. This title charts the plight of the Chippewa as white culture steadily encroaches, forcing the native people off the island and dispersing their community on the mainland.
