Synopsis

This work covers the key scientific issues facing Australia at the beginning of the 21st century. It tackles the widely held fears about genetically modified foods, and takes the press and broadcasters to task for the low level of science debate in the media. It also highlights the damaging loss of science talent from Australia - and the failure to attract talented young Australians to careers in science.
