August 17th, 2007

Posted by: Roger Pielke, Jr.

Some quotes from the review of The Honest Broker by Georgetown University’s Nathan Hultman appearing in the 17 August 2007 issue of Science:

“In The Honest Broker: Making Sense of Science in Policy and Politics, Roger Pielke Jr. successfully illuminates these challenges to science and scientists.”

“Pielke’s framework provides a helpful starting point for investigating factors that complicate the science-society relationship. . . Pielke deftly shows how scientists selections among these options can affect outcomes.”

“[T]he book’s direct language and concrete examples convey the concepts to a wide audience. By categorizing different roles in the often vexed but necessary relations between scientists and their social world, Pielke clarifies choices not only for scientists but also for the diverse members of democratic society, for whom scientific perspectives are an essential component of better policy.”
