Science in the Seventies: Battling for the Soul of a Profession, from the Vietnam War to Star Wars

“Science in the Seventies” is a history of the political, economic, and ideological battles over science in the United States during the 1970s, including changes in defense contracting and privatization, theoretical critiques of scientific practice, the activism of women in STEM fields, and the evolution of citizen science. In particular, this work highlights and historicizes two key questions that animated high-stakes intellectual debates: What counts as science, and who counts as a scientist?
