Funding agencies increasingly expect their grantees to engage in outreach and education, and such activity can be seen as both a survival strategy and an ethical imperative for taxpayer-supported, university-based research. Geared towards undergraduate and graduate students in journalism, communication, mass communication, and media studies, as well as towards working journalists, public information officers, and public relations specialists, this encyclopedia introduces this vast, fascinating field while challenging the reader to question assumptions inherent in communication across disciplinary boundaries. In order to do this, we also need to improve our understanding of how people think, form opinions, and process information. It is not convenient to review an encyclopedia by reading it from A to Z and certainly this reviewer does not claim more than to have looked at a small selection of entries. There is little illustration, but every entry has relevant extra readings recommended.

The contributors are in the main university academics from American universities and the science communication programs mentioned largely American programs, but there are a scattering of contributions from Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. Her current research is supported by grants from the National Science Foundation and other sources. In order to do this, we also need to improve our understanding of how people think, form opinions, and process information. A nice addition is an appendix that describes academic programs in relevant disciplines including science journalism, science writing, and science communication. This highly interdisciplinary set is aimed at an equally broad audience of graduate and undergraduate students in communications, mass media, and journalism as well as postgraduate practitioners.

Should the views of scientists who do not believe that climate change has been caused by human activity be included alongside the views of those who do, in order to give a balanced story, or does this mislead the public into thinking that both of these positions are equally accepted within the scientific community? This is taking place in a globalizing economy and society that further complicates the division between information haves and have-nots and compounds the challenge of communicating about emerging science and technology to increasingly diverse audiences. An excellent addition to academic, large public, and special libraries. Geared towards undergraduate and graduatestudents in journalism, communication, mass communication, and media studies, as well as towards working journalists, public information officers, and public relations specialists, this encyclopedia introduces this vast, fascinating field while challenging the reader toquestion assumptionsinherent incommunication across disciplinary boundaries.
