In this volume of The ANNALS, “The Politics of Science: Political Values and the Production, Communication, and Reception of Scientific Knowledge,” special editors Suhay and Druckman gather scholars to discuss¬†complex questions in the fields of political science, communication, psychology, public health, law, and philosophy. The volume discusses the communication of scientific knowledge to the public, its reception, and the interplay of political values and scientific beliefs when implementing policy. The editors address complex issues such as stem cell research, vaccines, fracking, nuclear power, and attempt to contribute to the effort to reduce political polarization surrounding science and the dialogue about it.
