Since many of Velikovsky's sources are not readily available to the general reader, it seemed a good idea to gather together enough of these 'original contexts' to show just what the problems are.

Beyond Velikovsky

"In Part I, I attempt to tell, without bias and in chronological sequence, the story of the controversy. Part II details my personal analysis of the affair and touches on wider issues that are relevant--how to distinguish cranks from scientists, for example. I attempt to make the difficult point that one can reach personal conviction without losing sight of the fact that personal convictions are not necessarily true. "I began this work simply because I found the Velikovsky affair a fascinating controversy about which I wanted to become clear.

Carl Sagan and Immanuel Velikovsky

Ginenthal states: "Dr. Carl Sagan, a professor of astronomy from Cornell University, a well known public personality and writer of popular books of science, in 1974 at a symposium of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) delivered a paper, "An Analysis of Worlds in Collision". This paper was later edited and presented in a book, Scientists Confront Velikovsky, published by Cornell University Press. "Having read Velikovsky, I also read Sagan's paper; I thereafter discovered that a group of scientists and scholars had written critiques of Sagan's analysis.

and his Critics

The particular science central to this controversy is history, for it is a debate about the past of our planet and that solar system of which it is a part, about events observed and recorded by human societies. But, even more than the most complex historical topics, the issues raised by Velikovsky have crucial significance for the widest range of particular sciences, and it is appropriate that they have become the matter of broad interdisciplinary discussion.
