Book Review: "The Honest Broker: Making Sense of Science in Policy and Politics"

Citation:

LACKEY, R. T. Book Review: "The Honest Broker: Making Sense of Science in Policy and Politics". BIOSCIENCE. American Institute of Biological Sciences, MCLEAN, VA, 58(4):359-360, (2008).

Impact/Purpose:

The Honest Broker is an important book and it should be read by scientists, especially those involved in environmental and ecological issues.

Description:

The Honest Broker is a must-read for any scientist with even a modest interest in environmental policy or politics, and I recommend it especially to scientists unfamiliar with the continuing controversy over how scientists misuse science in environmental policy and politics. The book will also be of interest to political scientists and others well versed in the scholarly literature concerning science, scientists, and public policy, but Roger Pielke's core analysis and message will not be surprising to these readers.
