The New Atlantis; A Journal of Technology & Society, Number 27, Spring 2010. Adam Keiper.
Washington DC: Ethics and Public Policy Center, 2010. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Trade paperback. 135, [1] pages. Illustrations. The New Atlantis, founded in 2003, is a quarterly journal about the social, ethical, political, and policy dimensions of modern science and technology. The journal’s name is taken from Francis Bacon’s novella New Atlantis, which its editors describe as a story "of a society living with the benefits and challenges of advanced science and technology." An editorial in the inaugural issue states that the aim of the Journal is "to help us avoid the extremes of euphoria and despair that new technologies too often arouse; and to help us judge when mobilizing our technological prowess is sensible or necessary, and when the preservation of things that count requires limiting the kinds of technological power that would lessen, cheapen, or ultimately destroy us." Writing for National Review, editor Adam Keiper described The New Atlantis as being written from a "particularly American and conservative way of thinking about both the blessings and the burdens of modern science and technology."

The author has written that "I began my career as a journalist in California, where I won awards for feature, commentary and investigative writing. I have written journalism and essays consistently since then and have also published two books, Lost in Space and The Emissary. In the past few years, I’ve taken my journalism and essayist work in a new direction through organizational ‘impact’ writing: positioning ideas, projects, research and people in the public eye through writing. To date, I’ve done impact writing for the London School of Economics and the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, and this is an area of work I’m keen to develop further.
