University Science and the Federal Government

Is there a crisis in the relations between research universities and the federal government? Is our system, which has been the most successful in the world, breaking down?The Fragile Contract brings together essays by scientists, university leaders, scholars, and seasoned science watchers from government agencies and nonprofit groups to address this issue. Neither advocacy nor polemic, it explores the social contexts for and influences on research in the university setting to encourage greater understanding of core issues by both politicians and scientists.
