Each year, Congress appropriates billions of dollars for scientific research. In this book, veteran science reporter Donald S. Greenberg takes us behind closed doors to show us who gets the money, and why. What he reveals is startling: an overlooked world of false claims, pork, and cronyism, where science, money and politics all manipulate one another.
Daniel S. Greenberg is a Washington-based journalist specializing in the politics of science. He is the author of The Politics of Pure Science, also published by the University of Chicago Press, and was the founding editor of the Science & Government Report.
