The Lysenko AffaireBook - 1986
The Lysenko affair was perhaps the most bizarre chapter in the history of modern science. For thirty years, until 1965, Soviet genetics was dominated by a fanatical agronomist who achieved dictatorial power over genetics and plant science as well as agronomy. "A standard source both for Soviet specialists and for sociologists of science."--American Journal of Sociology. "Joravsky has produced ... the most detailed and authoritative treatment of Lysenko and his view on genetics."--New York Times Book Review.
