THE ROLE OF SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION IN CRITICAL PERIOD MANAGEMENT. VOLUME I

The purpose of this study was to examine the role of scientific and technical information in the resolution of domestic crises. The study was designed to be an exploratory effort, which would provide insight into the use of scientific and technical information and develop hypotheses which could be employed in future experiments or analyses. The method used to conduct the studies included the preparation and analysis of four ex post case histories of domestic crises. The crises examined include: Penn Central bankruptcy, Oil Embargo of 1973-74, Emergency blackout of September 20, 1970 in parts of New York City, and the Apollo 13 incident.
