Sarah Bridger (Associate Professor of History, California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo) Science in the Seventies: Battling for the Soul of a Profession, from the Vietnam War to Star Wars
ACLS/New York Public Library Fellow

Historian of science Sarah Bridger (Calif. Polytechnic State Univ.) has written a nicely constructed account of scientists and weapons research in the tortured ethical landscape of the Cold War.
Her case studies illuminate the institution-building provoked by the USSR's dramatic launch of the Sputnik 1 satellite in 1957. She concentrates on the moral conundrums raised for US scientists by the proposed nuclear test ban, anxieties over conventional warfare, the moral maze of the Vietnam War, the implications of weapons work at schools like MIT, the problem of calibrating moral standards to notions of objectivity, and the fraught struggle over implementing the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), better known as "Star Wars. Sarah Bridger has broken new ground by studying the growing numbers of ordinary figures that flooded into the nation's laboratories and universities during the Cold War. In so doing, she exploits both the secondary literature and a daunting array of archival source material. We readers are the beneficiaries of her diligent and dusty labor. I often found myself wishing Bridger had moved onto higher ground and described the broader environment of her cases. This might have revealed earlier crises of conscience overlooked by historians. While Scientists at War will test the common reader's powers of concentration, Sarah Bridger has raised compelling new questions about the place of scientists as ethical actors and the intricate, immensely important ties between science and the military during and beyond the Cold War era.
