Science and Politics
“Man, you guys worked me hard . . .” 
—Chris Mooney
From stem cell research to intelligent design to global warming, po-litical confict over science is heating up.
In his 2005 bestseller,
The Republican War on Science
, journalist Chris Mooney made the case that, again and again, even
overwhelming scientic consensus has met immovable political
obstacles. And, again and again, those obstacles have arisen on theright—from the Bush administration, from coalitions of Republicansand from individually powerful Republicans. As the new paperbackedition announces, Mooney’s book, “brings this whole story together 
for the rst time, weaving the disparate strands of the attack on sci
-ence into a compelling and frightening account of our government’sincreasing unwillingness to distinguish between legitimate researchand ideologically driven pseudoscience.”
Looking For A Fight, Is There A Republican War OnScience?
started life as a ‘book event’—an online, roundtable-stylecritical symposium on Mooney’s work, hosted at Crooked Timber (crookedtimber.org). Eight contributors offered reviews, discus-sion and critical commentary. And Mooney responded to his critics.
Now the event is a book, available here in print for the rst time and
online (for free download atparlorpress.com).
