    Here’s one I wonder if you know how to dig into, I just stumbled on it:

    Journal and Proceedings of the Royal Society of New South Wales, vol. 144, nos. 3&4, pp. 50-57.Page 4, ISSN 0035-9173/11/020050-8

    Science advice and policy making

    Conway, G.(1997) The Doubly Green Revolution;
    Penguin Books, London, UK

    I read this in the Google cache, here:
