520    The Royal Society is one of the world's oldest and most 
       prestigious scientific bodies, but what has it done in 
       recent decades? Increasingly marginalised by postwar 
       developments and the reforms of civil science in the 1960s,
       the Society was at risk of resting on its laurels. Instead,
       it found ways of exploiting its unique networks of 
       scientific talent to promote science. Creating 
       opportunities for outstanding individuals to establish and
       advance research careers, influencing policymaking at 
       national and international levels, and engaging with the 
       public outside the world of professional science, the 
       Society gave fresh expression to the values that had 
       shaped its long history. Through unparalleled access to 
       the Society's modern archives and other archival sources, 
       interviews with key individuals and extensive inside 
       knowledge, Peter Collins shows how the Society addressed 
       the challenges posed by the astounding growth of science 
       and by escalating interactions between science and daily 
       life.
