Invitation for Input on a Second Edition of The Honest Broker

I am currently mulling over the idea of working on a second edition of The Honest Broker (CUP willing;-). I have received a lot of excellent comments, suggestions and critique on the original, and there has also been discussion in the academic literature. Currently I am thinking about adding three chapters:
  • a discussion of how policy makers should use experts (so, the flip side of the main perspective advanced in the book)
  • a discussion of best practices in "honest brokering" from around the world
  • a case study of the climate debate using the framework of the book, with a focus on science, the media, and decision makers (unsure about this one as it might distract from everything else)
What would you like to see in a revision? Advice and suggestions welcomed!
