Naval War College Review


Chris Eldridge


Patrick Maynard Stuart Blackett was a key member of the international circle of scientists who led the Allied defense research efforts of World War II, and he was the heart and soul of the Cold War military-academic-industrial complex. In this book, sixteen authors at- tempt to shed light on Blackett’s role in that story. The collection includes papers presented at a 1998 conference commemorating Blackett at Cambridge University, as well as other recent writ- ings about him.
