Descrição da editora
The first edition of Darryl Cunningham's Science Tales was published in 2012 and shortlisted for the British Comi Awards 'Best Book'. This new edition has been updated to include a clinical exposé of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, and its political framework in the UK and USA. A graphic milestone of investigative reporting, Cunningham's essays explode the lies, hoaxes and scams of popular science, debunking media myths and decoding some of today's most fiercely-debated issues: climate change, electroconvulsive therapy, the moon landing, the MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) vaccine, homeopathy, chiropractic, evolution, science denialism and, new for this edition, fracking. Thoroughly researched and sourced, Cunningham's clear narrative, graphic lines and photographic illustration explain complicated and controversial issues with deceptive ease.
