A science studies book by science sociologist Bart Simon. BS takes a
supposedly neutral look at cold fusion, and the main point of the book is
that CF died, as far as the mainstream science community is concerned, but
lives on in a parallel community of researchers, some of whom are diverting
grant money, some are retirees and working at home, and some being amateurs.
BS extends the "undead" metaphor (but never goes as far as mentioning zombies)
to such fields as "hauntology" and the like. He profusely cites other
sociologists for single words, but is less profuse with sources of scientific
statements, and is clearly weak on chemistry and physics. The book would have
benefitted from a run past a few experts in these fields. However, the book
does provide a good timeline of CF and some background information, obtained
from interviews, that has not been presented elsewhere.
