Description

Science has had a bad press, from ecological scares to fears about genetic engineering. This book argues that scientists are not out to destroy the planet as the public may think. It explores both the image and substance of the role of science and scientists in society and presents a case for the vital importance of science to all of us today. The author aims to redress the balance, portraying scientists as informed, concerned citizens. The book covers topics as diverse as the New Age, numerology, genetics and ethics.
