Turchin and Scheidel publish in PNAS

Popular press for PNAS Article: Several major world newspapers discussed our results: New York Times (USA), Spiegel (Germany), Standaard (Belgium), and Folha de S. Paulo (Brazil). Other media that discussed it include N-TV (the German TV channel for financial news), ORF (Austrian Public TV), and Echo Moskvy (a Russian radio station). The article in Scienceincludes a rejoinder from a proponent of the high count hypothesis (which we reject in our paper). The story was featured in the science sections of YahooYahoo-UK,Lenta and Infox (Russia), and EuropaPress (Spain). Other web-based sources that covered the story are WiredEurekAlert, and NSF News (the latter includes a video interview).

The story also appeared in a variety of popular science magazines and web sites, including FirstScienceWorldScienceScienceDailye!ScienceNews,Wissenschaft-OnlineEpocHuscarlGallileoElementy, and MultKor.

Last, but not least, is our own UConn Today, which perhaps lacks the wide readership of New York Times or Spiegel, but was the only publication that managed not to garble any aspects of the story.
