Beschreibung:

This unique comparative study looks at efforts to regulate carcinogenic chemicals in several Western democracies, including the United States, and finds marked national differences in how conflicting scientific interpretations and competing political interests are resolved. Whether risk issues are referred to expert committees without public debate or debated openly in a variety of forums, patterns of interaction among experts, policy makers, and the public reflect fundamental features of each country's political culture. "e;A provocative argument....Poses interesting questions for the sociology of science, especially science produced for public debate."e;-Contemporary Sociology A Volume in the Russell Sage Foundation's Social Science Frontiers Series
