Reviews

"This addition to ABC-CLIO's Contemporary World Issues series tackles one of the thorniest issues in global politics. Newton goes to great lengths--whether exploring climate change or the debate over the legalization of marijuana--to explain just how it is that science has become so politicized. . . . As a timely resource on controversial topics, this title will most benefit high school and public libraries." --Booklist

"While the Contemporary World Issues series is targeted at high school students and would serve quite well at that level, Science and Political Controversy is also an ideal source for argumentative papers, speeches, or debates in introductory English and communications courses at the post-secondary level. This work is recommended for high school, public, and undergraduate college libraries." --ARBA

"Though his base premise--that science and politics exist in 'virtually constant conflict in the modern world'--is arguable, Newton assembles a useful . . . overview of areas, past and present, in which the two have clashed. . . . Science gets more positive play here than politics--faith-based or otherwise--but readers looking for historical and current points of friction between the two will find it a serviceable guide." --School Library Journal
