"The public understanding of science and technology is becoming a crucial indicator as democracies struggle to learn how to manage an age of cyberspace, information brokers, and synthetic "just-about-everything". The first full-lengh treatment of both the history and current issues of the public understanding of science... A lively balance of theory, practice, and case studies... I highly recommend this book to all who are concerned with building the public's ability to cope with the opportunities and dangers which science and technology will be offering as the new century begins."
Alan J. Friedman, Director, New York Hall of Science.
"Gregory and Miller have written a book that will strongly interest anyone concerned with the public understanding of science."
Jonathan Piel, Former editor, Scientific American
