    The Science and Technology policy changes in post-Mao China cannot be complete without a historical narrative and analysis of Science and Technology in its pre-policy (prior to ) and policy (since when the Qing rulers began to promote Science and Technology) periods. This book is an imperative to revisit and interrogate the nature and.   Despite the verdict of the Cultural Revolution as a disaster for China, a number of scholars have called for re-examining socialist science under Mao's aegis. Western observers once found much to admire in Chairman Mao's mass science, with its origins in the May Fourth era/5(1).

    For more than a century, China's leaders have called for rapid development of science and technology, and science policy has played a greater role in national politics in China than in many other countries. China's scientific and technical achievements have been impressive in many fields. Although it has been a relatively low-income, developing country, China has by its own efforts managed to.

The post-Mao leadership’s consensus that science and technology are crucial forces to promote economic modernization has led to the introduction of many reforms. Among these are reforms to promote “scientific decision making,” the basing of government decisions upon scientifically derived knowledge rather than leadership whim.

Along with the political and economic reforms that have characterized the post-Mao era in China there has been a potentially revolutionary change in Chinese science and technology.

Here sixteen scholars examine various facets of the current science and technology scene, comparing it with the past and speculating about future trends.

Lyman Miller examines the scientific community in China and prominent members such as Fang and physicist and historian of science Xu Liangying. He illuminates the professional and humanistic values that impelled scientific intellectuals on their course toward open, liberal political dissent.

China was a world leader in science and technology until the early years of the Ming dynasty. Chinese discoveries and Chinese innovations such as papermaking, printing, the compass, and gunpowder (the Four Great Inventions) contributed to the economic development in East Asia, the Middle East and e scientific activity started to decline in the fourteenth century.

Science and Civilisation in China (–present) is an ongoing series of books about the history of science and technology in China published by Cambridge University Press. It was initiated and edited by British historian Joseph Needham (–). The Jesuit China missions of the 16th and 17th centuries introduced Western science and astronomy, then undergoing its own revolution, to China.

One modern historian writes that in late Ming courts, the Jesuits were "regarded as impressive especially for their knowledge of astronomy, calendar-making, mathematics, hydraulics, and geography.".

Lyman Miller examines the scientific community in China and prominent members such as Fang 4/5(1). This up-to-date analysis evaluates China's state-led approach to science and technology, and its successes and failures. In recent decades, China has seen huge investments in high-tech science parks, a surge in home-grown top-ranked global companies, and a significant increase in scientific publications and patents.
