Rogers Smith writes, "…we need to show that social scientists, especially those at leading
universities, are doing better at teaching—something that, I fear, we

scientist value most highly is written using specialized terminology,
equations and data sets that render the work impenetrable to many
non-quantitative political scientists, much less to the general public."
