This book discusses the feud about how government should use science in warfare between Henry Tizard, chairman of the Aeronautical Research Committee, and F. A. Lindemann, advisor to Winston Churchill. Tizard and Lindemann were both scientists who were consultants to the British government during World War II. Based on a series of lectures that C. P. Snow gave on the feud at Harvard University in 1960, the book presents the personalities and events, and reflects on the underlying issues, such as the role of scientists in government. The book includes an appendix in which the author responds to the controversy over his first publication of the account.
