This book illuminates how Berkner became a model that produced the scientist/advisor/policymaker that helped build post-war America. It does so by providing a detailed account of the personal and professional beliefs of one of the most influential figures in the American scientific community; a figure that helped define the political and social climates that existed in the United States during the Cold War.
...engagingly written in a narrative manner, following Berkner's career chronologically while carefully explaining the scientific, governmental and other contexts Berkner found himself in. - IEEE Newsletter No. 57, November 2001
