Book News Annotation:

In this new edition, Josephson (history, Colby College) expands his comparison of science in Nazi Germany and in the Soviet Union to include additional examples from North Korea. He explores the impact of politics on practices of biology and physics, discussing both changes in scientific production and the experiences of the scientists themselves. He then turns to the nature of technology, exploring the nature of bureaucracy-led technological projects and the aesthetics of "gigantomania."
