The Honest Broker Reviewed in Nature

August 23rd, 2007

Posted by: Roger Pielke, Jr.

Some quotes from the 23 August 2007 issue of Nature, which has a review of The Honest Broker by Andrew A. Rosenberg from the University of New Hampshire (subscribers can see it here).

Happily, the book by Roger Pielke, Jr. on the engagement of scientists in policy offers a pithy, insightful basis for discussing the contributions scientists can make to advising policy makers. . .

This is a clear, thought-provoking book that helps move us away from thinking of science as ‘pure’ and distinct from policy. It would make an excellent basis for a graduate seminar. It isn’t a textbook, but a think-piece, and we all need to consider carefully our responsibility to engage as scientists in policy making.
