“The War on Science by Shawn Lawrence Otto” is one of the best books written by Shawn Lawrence Otto on modern sciences. He is co-founder and producer of the US presidential science debates at sciencedebate.org. Otto identifies a three-front war on science in this book. These wars are “The identity politics war on science”, “The ideological war on science”, and “The industrial war on science”. Otto proved that war on science is part of the ideological war on science, often with strong religious connections. The industrial war on science is in some ways the most important because it is the best funded, and the anti-science generals have a lot at stake. When cornered, they tend to be the most dangerous. At the end of Otto’s book he told how to win these wars. He is detailed and explicit in his suggestions, producing a virtual handbook of action and activism. Recognizing how the system works, how to marshal resources to reshape the conversation, what scientists need to do, what communicators need to do, are part of a coherent plan. Otto ends with a “Science Pledge” which is “a renewed commitment to civic leadership based on the principles of freedom, science, and evidence.” You can also Download Implementing World Class IT Strategy by Peter A.
