Maitland Lecture, 1982. Whither British Engineering?

The main theme of this lecture is the enormous importance of engineering in modern society, the damage that has been done by lack of understanding of the significance and principles of engineering by so many people in positions of influence and power, and the need to rectify this lack of mutual understanding between engineers and others, so as to ensure that engineers make their influence felt more effectively to the great benefit of the nation. Viscount Caldecote
