Kurzbeschreibung

For 60 years, scientists from the United States and the Soviet Union participated in state-organized programs of collaboration. From the first scientific exchanges of the Cold War years through the fall of the Soviet Union, Gerson S. Sher, a former manager of these cooperative programs, provides a detailed and critical assessment of what worked, what didn’t, and why it matters.
