520    How does one go about organizing something as complicated 
       as a strategic-missile or space-exploration program? 
       Stephen B. Johnson here explores the answer -- systems 
       management -- in a groundbreaking study that involves Air 
       Force planners, scientists, technical specialists, and, 
       eventually, bureaucrats. Taking a comparative approach, 
       Johnson focuses on the theory, or intellectual history, of
       "systems engineering" as such, its origins in the Air 
       Force's Cold War ICBM efforts, and its migration to not 
       only NASA but the European Space Agency. Exploring the 
       history and politics of aerospace development and weapons 
       procurement, Johnson examines how scientists and engineers
       created the systems management process to coordinate large
       -scale technology development, and how managers and 
       military officers gained control of that process. "Those 
       funding the race demanded results," Johnson explains. "In 
       response, development organizations created what few 
       expected and what even fewer wanted -- a bureaucracy for 
       innovation. To begin to understand this apparent 
       contradiction in terms, we must first understand the 
       exacting nature of space technologies and the concerns of 
       those who create them."
