Can we trust scientists? And can we control science and technology in such a way as to deliver good and not evil? Clearing away the myths, this guide addresses these crucial questions.

Science can be used for the well-being of humankind and the planet or it can be used for profit, power and privilege. This guide takes a fresh look at the history of science, helps us challenge the old ideas and calls for public participation in scientific policies. Essential for all aspiring scientists.

Ranging over subjects as diverse as genetic engineering, biotechnology, medicine and military science, Jerry Ravetz demonstrates that seeing science as a process involving funding, research, reputations, publication and social and cultural concerns, gives us the best basis for effective action in future. It concludes with a questionnaire that enables anyone engaged in science to locate themselves in the bigger picture.

Diagrams, charts and graphs used throughout to illustrate key information.
