Higgins) and "Frauds from 1960 ao the Present: Bad Apples or a Bad Barrel?" (William Broad); (in part two) "Science, Deviance, and Society" (Maria Kilbourne, Brock Kilbourne, and A. C. Higgins), "Another Sociological Perspective on Deviance in Science" (Jerry Gaston), and "Anomaly Revisited: Rules and Roles in Research" (Paul Meadows and Peter Meadows); (in part three) "Fraud in Science: Who Patrols and Who Controls?" (Albert Barber), "Compliance and Noncompliance with Federal Regulations for the Protection of Human Subjects" (Charles McCarthy), and "The Legal Basis for Federal Prosecution of Science Misrepresentation as 'White Coat' Crime" (Eugene Dong); (in part four) "Deviance in Science: The Depletion of a Vital National Resource" (Brock Kilbourne and Maria Kilbourne); and (in part five) "The Inversion of Mastery" (Edward Sampton), "The Mythical Content of Economic Theory" (Mike Reed), and "Normative Deviance of Modern U.S. Science: Its Ideological Legitimation and Philosophical Foundation" (Roger Dittman).
