Reviews

"This small book ... [will] be of interest, or even a source of enlightenment, to those pathologists who worked through the 'tissue retention' crisis of the opening years of this millennium and are still wondering 'How on earth did that happen to us?' ... The book is well written." - Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists

"Bioscience, Governance and Politics is a captivating and provocative read. Scholars in medical law, STS, SSK, policy studies and political science will enjoy the narrative presentation." - Medical Law Review

"The original research presented in the book is fascinating, its strength being the interviews with science governance's key players ... Bioscience, Governance and Politics is a fascinating and important book for anyone interested in the governance of bioscience in the UK or the more general issues of the uses and abuses of 'the public' in policymaking." - BioNews
