Based around a number of illustrative case studies, this book charts the development of our modern day reliance on statistics. Topics covered include scientific innovations, administrative issues and the use of numbers in politics. By looking at these aspects of statistics together, the authors are able to present a truly original work - one that provides an international perspective on the rhetoric of numbers.
