Broadening the conventional view that the Soviet government and Communist Party tightly controlled scientists and scientific research under their domain, demonstrates how scientists in turn influenced the rulers, especially in the areas of nuclear policy and human rights. Also looks at clashes between personal responsibility and loyalty, particularly the cases of Peter Kapitsa and Andrei Sakharov. Draws on newly declassified archival documents.
