Andrew Pickering’s Constructing Quarks claims that the scientific community’s evaluation of atomic parity violation experiments was determined by career considerations, and not the quality of the experimental observations. This essay argues that scientists had good evidential reasons to accept atomic parity violation as a strong confirmation of the Weinberg-Salam Standard Model of weak interactions.

Keywords:   Andrew Pickering, Constructing Quarks, career interests, atomic parity violation, Weinberg-Salam, standard model
