Oxford University Press

This chapter explains the phenomena and puzzles that the remainder of the book attempts to explain. It presents innovation data for dozens of nations over the past several decades to identify which countries are the current global leaders and laggards in S&T, and how these positions have recently changed. That is, this chapter describes the world’s “innovative nations” and their behavior in a clear, accessible, and comprehensive manner.
