Dear friends of NCSE,

A preview of Antony Alumkal’s Paranoid Science.

A PREVIEW OF PARANOID SCIENCE

NCSE is pleased to offer a free preview of Antony Alumkal’s Paranoid
Science: The Christian Right’s War on Reality (New York University
Press, 2017). The preview consists of chapter 4, “Seeing Red Over
Green Evangelicals: The Crusade against Environmentalism,” which
discusses the development of “the contemporary evangelical
anti-environmental movement,” “the ‘champion’ of paranoia among
Christian Right movements challenging science.”

“Paranoid Science is a reliable and insightful guide to the fever
swamps of evangelical science denial. A gripping, disturbing, and
important contribution,” wrote NCSE’s deputy director Glenn Branch,
while Publishers Weekly praised its “rich, nuanced, and detailed view
of mid-20th-century American evangelicalism’s right-wing political
expression and its often dangerous impact on science in the service of
the common good.”
