Summary Note I am very thankful to Springer-Verlag for publishing a collection of some of my non-mathematical works-I call them political works. in the broad sense of the word political. Three of these have appeared in print: - My article on the Ladd-Lipset sUIvey. which appeared in the New York Review of Books. 18 May 1978; and also in The File (Springer-Verlag. 1981). - My article on the Baltimore case. which appeared in the Jour­ nal of Ethics and Behavior. February 1993. - My articles on HIV and AIDS. which appeared in the Yale Sci­ entific (Fall 1994 and Winter 1995). reprinted updated in the book AIDS: Virus-or drug induced? Kluwer Academic Pub­ lishers. 1996. pp. 271-307. The first item. "Academia. Journalism. and Politics." is itself a book based on my Huntington file. The "Background and Motiva­ tion" section of this sub-book can be used as a foreword for all my "political" works. and also contains an explanation of how I use the word "political." In that section. readers will find a general discussion of the way I process information and some criteria I use in discourse.:
Contents note Academia, Journalism, and Politics: A Case Study: The Huntington Case -- Strange Survey of U.S. Profs: The Ladd-Lipset Case -- Questions of Scientific Responsibility: The Baltimore Case -- Questions of Editorial Responsibility: Publication of the Baltimore Article -- The Gallo Case -- The Case of HIV and AIDS -- The Shafaravich Case and the National Academy of Sciences -- Maintaining Scientific Standards.
