From the Back Cover:

In 'the Cold War and American Science: ' The Military-Industrial Academic Complex at MIT and Stanford, Stuart Leslie shows how the post -World War II alliance of the U.S. military, high technology corporations, and academia redefined and degraded both American science and the American university.

Review:

"An eye-opener. During the Second World War, American universities won R& D contracts far bigger than those awarded to industrial giants.... Leslie shows how these seductive handouts finally compromised intellectual freedom and crumbled the American economy, causing campus riots on the way." -- "New Scientist"
