The Sciences

The IntersectionBy Chris MooneyAugust 10, 2010 8:54 PM

It has just come to my attention that the paperback edition of our book was recently reviewed positively in the 

Bloomsbury Review--

I've put up the PDF here. The reviewer concluded as follows:

Rather than assigning blame, Unscientific America suggests a broad-based dialogue to generate the political will to reframe our attitudes and policies about science--which of course is not a monolithic entity--and its role in contemporary society. This is an urgent problem for our nation, and this book, newly in paperback, is a thought-provoking way to consider your own place in the solution.

We sometimes get the odd accusation--we being Sheril and myself--that in Unscientific America,we were guilty of unfairly blaming scientists for problems relating to poor science communication and scientific illiteracy.

Yet this reviewer does not seem to have noticed any of the things that those who feel we're blaming scientists seem to have noticed--and in fact, perceived something very different ("rather than assigning blame...").
