The President's Scientists: Reminiscences of a White House Science Advisorby D. Allan Bromley
Pub. Date: 08/11/2004
Publisher: Yale University Press
D. Allan Bromley, the first person to hold the cabinet-level rank of Science Advisor to the President, here writes an engrossing memoir of his years at the Bush White House, bringing the unique perspective of a scientist to the political realities of policy making with the President and his other Senior Assistants. Bromley's account is both a broad overview of the role of science and technology in the Bush Administration and an insider's account of the ambiance, personalities, and politics that mold policy decisions in Washington.
"A delightfully candid and deeply informed and reflective look at critical issues and events at a turning point in the history of government-science relations."
-Bruce L. R. Smith, Brookings Institution
"From the unique perspective of the only senior staff member in the Bush administration who reported both to the President and the Congress, Bromley gives us discerning new views on leading players in the Washington and world drama."
-R. Gordon Hoxie, Editor, Presidential Studies Quarterly
