3Title:  Nonsense on stilts: how to tell science from bunk   
 Creator:  Pigliucci, Massimo, 1964- 
 Publication:  University of Chicago Press, Chicago, c2010. 
 Notes:  Main copy: 2011 printing. Includes bibliographical references (p. [307]-327) and index. "Creationists who dismiss Darwin's theory of evolution. Parents who refuse to vaccinate their children. Climate change deniers who dismiss the warming planet as a hoax. These are just some of the groups that, despite robust scientific evidence, embrace pseudoscientific beliefs and practices. Why do they believe bunk? And how does their ignorance threaten us all? Noted skeptic Massimo Pigliucci sets out to separate the fact from the fantasy in this entertaining exploration of the nature of science, the borderlands of fringe science, and--borrowing a famous phrase from philosopher Jeremy Bentham--the nonsense on stilts. Covering a range of controversial topics, Pigliucci cuts through the ambiguity surrounding science to look more closely at how science is conducted, how it is disseminated, how it is interpreted, and what it means to our society. The result is in many ways a 'taxonomy of bunk' that explores the intersection of science and culture at large"--Publisher description.

10Title:  Medical apartheid: the dark history of medical experimentation on Black Americans from colonial times to the present   
 Creator:  Washington, Harriet A. 
 Publication:  Doubleday, New York, c2006. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (p. [465]-484) and index. The first comprehensive history of medical experimentation on African Americans. Starting with the earliest encounters between Africans and Western medical researchers and the racist pseudoscience that resulted, it details the way both slaves and freedmen were used in hospitals for experiments conducted without a hint of informed consent--a tradition that continues today within some black populations. It shows how the pseudoscience of eugenics and social Darwinism was used to justify experimental exploitation and shoddy medical treatment of blacks, and a view that they were biologically inferior, oversexed, and unfit for adult responsibilities. New details about the government's Tuskegee experiment are revealed, as are similar, less well-known medical atrocities conducted by the government, the armed forces, and private institutions. This book reveals the hidden underbelly of scientific research and makes possible, for the first time, an understanding of the roots of the African American health deficit.--From publisher description.
