Former Lally School Professor Publishes Book on Technological Innovation


Dr. Herbert I. Fusfeld

Dr. Herbert I. Fusfeld, former professor and director of the Center for Science and Technology Policy at the Rensselaer Lally School has published a monograph, Technological Innovation: Why the U.S. Leads. The book also includes a forward from Lally School Dean Tom Begley.

This book explores how technological innovation fosters research activities, policies, and actions that can stimulate economic growth. Dr. Fusfeld also examines the principle sources of technical change within the U.S. and the part each sector plays in generating strong technical innovation in this country.

Readers pursuing many interests - management, technical change, science policy, economic growth, or public policy - can gain a broader perspective about technological innovation from the many issues discussed in this book.
