About this book

This book examines the arguments and behaviour of the scientists who have been locked in conflict for a decade over two competing hypotheses for the cause of mass extinction, some 65 million years ago, of most of life on earth, including the dinosaurs. These papers - by historians, sociologists, philosophers and participating scientists - provide an opportunity to observe first hand the workings of science that in quieter times are hidden from view.
