Between Understanding and Trust gives an excellent overview of the wide range of unresolved questions arising in the context of public understanding of and attitudes toward science. It should prevent scientists and-of even greater importance-politicians from espousing the usual simplifications about globalisation and international competition.

–Professor Helga Nowotny of Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich, Switzerland

For both new researchers and those already working in the field, Between Understanding and Trust provides a much needed guide to the current state of the subject.
–Professor Richard Topf of Director of the Centre for Comparative European Survey Data, Oxford, UK

–Professor Paolo Fasella of Ministero dell'Universita e della Ricerca Scientifica e Tecnologica, Rome, Italy and former director of the Directorate General XII Science, Research and Development of the
