In this latest edition of the first extensive account of the history of American scientific societies, the author has augmented his well-documented account with an important survey of the societies established during the space age. The nuclear and space age virtually replaced the lone working scientist with research teams. Government, industry, and universities began working together on major scientific projects, making the scientific society indispensable in its role of coordinator.
