For twenty years, the author has contested the 'establishment' view of quasars as the most distant objects in the universe. In this book, Arp presents the original observations and fundamental data on quasars and galaxies, and explains why he has concluded that: far from being the most distant objects in the universe, quasars are associated in space with relatively nearby galaxies; quasars' enormous redshifts do not arise from the expansion of the universe, but rather are intrinsic properties of the quasars themselves; many galaxies show redshift anomalies related to quasars' redshifts; quasars and galaxies have an origin far different from that assumed in the 'standard' big-bang model of the universe; many astronomers, despite the accumulation of compelling evidence, defend what Arp believes is a fundamentally incorrect assumption about cosmic objects

L'ingerenza dei comuni cittadini nelle questioni riguardanti la ricerca scientifica non è generalmente ben vista dagli scienziati e dai media. Il cittadino è per lo più trattato come un eterno minorenne che deve seguire senza troppe domande i pareti degli "esperti", anche quando toccano le sfere più delicate della sua esistenza privata e sociale. Questo volume nasce invece dall'idea che il paternalismo scientista è non solo inappropriato ma pericoloso sia per la democrazia che per la scienza, in quanto solo un controllo costante dei cittadini su metodi, finalità e risultati della ricerca scientifica può garantire che questa non venga sviata per servire interessi di potentati econornici e accademici. I saggi contenuti in questo libro forniscono un 'amplissima esemplificazione che getta una luce nuova e spesso inquietante su quanto viene imposto all'opinione pubblica "in nome della scienza", pur essendo controverso o, talvolta, dimostrabilmente falso. Tra i temi trattati sono i rischi da esposizione a radiazioni e sostanze chimiche, gli organismi geneticamente modificati, l'omeopatia, le teorie sulla natura del cancro, la controversia sull'Aids, la base osservativa della teoria dell'universo in espansione. A essere messa in crisi, sia implicitamente che attraverso contributi specifici, è l'immagine di maniera della comunità scientifica come aperta alle critiche e dotata di un'intrinseca capacità di autocorrezione
