5.0 out of 5 stars Very, worthwhile reading!, 14 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Rejection of Continental Drift: Theory and Method in American Earth Science (Paperback)
I can highly recomend this book to anyone interested in the history and philosophy of the earth sciences. I have been looking for books on this subject for some time and this was certainly the "find" I was hoping for.
I am not, however, able to comment on the specifics of Oreskes' thesis, since the subject lies outside my field of expertise, but her more general comments about the status of science are certainly worth considering, and the evidence she marshalls is very impressive.
As a final point, I am putting my money where my mouth is and sending copies to various geologists and geophysicists that I know (perfect birthday gift for the earth scientist who already has her 4*4 and all the latest field gear)
