The Empire of Chance: How Probability Changed Science and Everyday Life (Reprint ed) [Ideas in Context Series]. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. 340 pp. Paperback octavo, very good plus condition. Gerd Gigerenzer and colleagues describe how quantitative ideas of chance transformed the natural and social sciences, as well as daily life over the last 300 years.

Separate chapters explore the theoretical and methodological impact in biology, physics and psychology.

In contrast to the literature on the mathematical development of probability and statistics, this book centres on how these technical innovations remade our conceptions of nature, mind and society. Written by an interdisciplinary team of historians and philosophers, this readable, lucid account keeps technical material to an absolute minimum. It is aimed not only at specialists in the history and philosophy of science, but also at the general reader and scholars in other disciplines. (A secondhand POD copy.) ISBN/ASIN: 052139838X.

London: Earthscan Publications. 185 pp. Hardback octavo, no jacket as issued, pictorial cover, as new condition. Michael Heazle explores how uncertainty is interpreted and used by policy makers, experts and politicians. It argues that conventional notions of rational, evidence-based policy making - hailed by governments and organisations across the world as the only way to make good policy - is impossible in highly complex and uncertain environments. The blind pursuit of such a rational goal is in fact irrational in a world of competing values and interests. Based on two high-profile case studies: the Iraq War, and climate change policy in the US, UK and Australia. Based on three years' research - including interviews with experts such as Hans Blix, Paul Pillar and Brian Jones. Both case studies show that treatment of uncertainty issues in specialist advice is often determined by how well the advice fits with or contradicts the policy goals and orientation of the politicians. One should not allow the debate to be side-tracked by arguments over whose expert advice is "more right". We must accept that uncertainty in complex issues is unavoidable, and recognise the values and interests that lie at the heart of the issues. Offers a hedging approach; this enables policy makers to manage rather than eliminate uncertainty. ISBN/ASIN: 9781849710831. Our Book No: 14256. $30 AUD.

New Haven: Yale University Press. 320 pp. Hardback octavo, dustjacket, very good condition (in very good dustjacket). In 1997, Prusiner received a Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine. His struggle to identify the agent responsible for ravaging the brains of animals suffering from scrapie and mad cow disease, and of humans with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, had been waged largely alone and in some cases in the face of strenuous disagreement. In this book, Prusiner tells the remarkable story of his discovery of prions - infectious proteins that replicate and cause disease, but surprisingly contain no genetic material - and reveals how superb and meticulous science is actually practiced with talented teams of researchers who persevere. He recounts the frustrations and rewards of years of research and offers fascinating portraits of his peers as they raced to discover the causes of fatal brain diseases. Prusiner’s hypothesis, once considered heresy, now stands as accepted science and the basis for developing diagnoses and eventual cures. This discovery may be relevant to understanding a range of diseases, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. ISBN/ASIN: 9780300191141. Our Book No: 17418. $20 AUD.
