Abstract:

Science writer Ivan Amato explores the origin development and accomplishments of NRL over the last 75 years. He analyzes the personalities institutional culture, and influences of what has become one of the preeminent research laboratories within the United States. Tracing the Laboratory from its small and often inauspicious origins of todays large, multi disciplinary research center, Amato sets in context many of the important research events and fronts of modern military science and technology.
