A Grain of Truth debunks the myth that growing public distrust of genetically modified organisms can be attributed to scientific illiteracy or sensationalistic news stories. Arguing neither for nor against genetic engineering and other forms of biotechnology, this book charges both media and industry with ignoring the concerns of the general public and encourages greater public debate over biotech and other such complex issues.
Susanna Hornig Priest presents a dispassionate and well-argued analysis of the notable contrast between the United States and Europe in the public reception of modern biotechnologies. This significant and important book will be of interest to many audiences concerned with the relations among science, the media, and public opinion in contemporary society. - George Gaskell, London School of Economics
