Title'The Frustration of Science'
DescriptionOriginally a broadcast talk given by Blackett in March 1934 and subsequently published as Chapter VII of a book of that title.

This is a late typescript, c.1972, with some manuscript corrections by Blackett, prepared for a collection of readings to be published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson under the title 'The Government of Science in Britain', and perhaps for Blackett's own proposed collection of writing.

Includes brief editorial correspondence and information about the book, 1971-1972.
