Modern science communication has emerged in the twentieth century as a field of study, a body of practice and a profession. Communicating Science charts the emergence of modern science communication across the world with detailed descriptions of the pathways followed by 39 different countries. In the book, Alexandra Borissova writes about her home country Russia where the fall of the Soviet Union saw a proud history of scientific achievement replaced by severely reduced funding for science and an almost complete absence of science communication.
