Corrupted Science: Fraud, Ideology and Politics in Science

Corrupted Science: Fraud, Ideology and Politics in Science - John Grant Interesting. Grant initially explores corrupted and self-deluded science and scientists thought he ages – those looking for fame, fortune and those that went to great lengths to convince the world that they were right. Then he moves onto more organised pseudo-science in the Military and religious worlds. This leads on to ideology and politics and into the perversions of science carried out by Nazi Germany and the Stalinist USSR. Finally Grant considered the systematic obstruction and denial of Scientific facts by the Bush administration. It is perhaps a little unfair to compare Bush’s America with the atrocities carried out by Germany and the USSR in the name of ‘science’, however the author certainly points you in the right direction if you ever wondered what is going on with a all that Intelligent Design rubbish and Global Warming (‘Climate Change’). Worth a read if you are interested in Science, though if you already read the scientific journals you’ll probably know most of what is levied against Bush.
