To See the Unseen: A History of Planetary Radar Astronomyby Andrew J. Butrica
A comprehensive & illuminating history of this little-understood, but surprisingly significant scientific activity. Quite rigorous & systematic in its methodology, the book explores the development of the radar astronomy specialty in the larger community of scientists. More than just discussing the development of this field, however, the author uses planetary radar astronomy as a vehicle for understanding larger issues relative to the planning & execution of big science by the Fed. government. Sources, interviews, technical essay, abbreviations, & index.
