Science But Not Scientists by Professor Vernon, L. Grose, an accomplished scientist and academic, was written 30 years ago and just published last year. On page 557 to 558 Grose explains the reason for the delay. The book was written under contract with the Free Press division of Macmillan and typed on an IBM Selectric typewriter to meet Macmillan's specifications by Grose's secretary, Shirley Markus (the completed book is 707 pages of small type printed on large pages, so the manuscript must have been much larger). When the manuscript was completed Grose flew to New York to personally deliver it to Edward R. Perry, President of The Free Press. In the mean time Gross found out that G. Ledyard Stebbins and Richard M. Lemmon orchestrated a campaign to force Macmillan to not publish to book by starting a boycott of their textbooks, no small concern to a publisher that makes much of its income from college texts. An investigation by the California Attorney General Confirmed this. So the manuscript sat for 30 years until scanners made it feasible to put the only hand copy in existence then in print. Now to the book itself. Most is a detailed history of Grosse's involvement in the science standards of California and his efforts to insure that Darwinism was not taught dogmatically. It is an incredible story of intolerance and hatred and dirty politics which makes one wonder how can such go on in America. No one can write intelligently about the history of this struggle without consulting this excellent, well written book.

I would say this book is a very essential and systematic methodology and science of RISK.
can you afford not to read it as a senior manager of an enterprise?

Format: Paperback
The weakest section of Vernon L. Grose's remarkable book Science But Not Scientists is the earliest. When he deals with the Big Bang theory as it existed in 1975, he accurately summarizes its weaknesses. However, since the time when this book was written (and then suppressed) that theory has gained a great deal of strength.

Grose's book is an account of his experiences from 1969 to 1975 in trying to get the science textbooks issued in California to represent the origins of life and human beings as beyond the reach of science. That is, since the evidence that they happened is complete, but the evidence of precisely how they happened cannot possibly be determined, since we can't go back and be there to watch, it would be a good idea if more than one hypothesis of how they might have happened were presented to students so that they could think about it from their own creative point of view. After all, that is the way science has always worked. Various hunches, hypotheses and even theories compete until one of them is so well established that all others give way before it. Nevertheless, even the most well established of theories, such as Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation was eventually corrected by Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, which, by the way has still not been reconciled with Quantum physics.

Ironically, the greatly increased strength that the Big Bang theory has gained over the last thirty years only supports the thesis of Science But Not Scientists. Each time progress has been made that supports the Big Bang theory, the result has been to make the miraculous nature of the universe all the more evident.
