About this product
- DescriptionScience and Techlogy Studies is a flourishing interdisciplinary field that examines the creation, development, and consequences of science and techlogy in their cultural, historical, and social contexts. The New Handbook of Science and Techlogy Studies provides a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the field, reviewing current research and major theoretical and methodological approaches and analyzing emergent issues in a form that is accessible to new and established scholars from a range of disciplines. Handbook chapters review the dominant theoretical perspectives of STS, present the current state of research on a spectrum of topics in the field, analyze changes brought about by the commercialization of science, study interactions between science and other institutions, examine the role of experts and the public in scientific and techlogical decision making, and consider the cultural and social dimensions of new techlogies. The New Handbook of Science and Techlogy Studies is the third in a series of volumes sponsored by the Society for Social Studies of Science that have defined the field of Science and Techlogy Studies. It will be an essential resource for scholars in that field as well as for those in such neighboring disciplines as anthropology, history, philosophy, sociology, law, political science, feminist and critical theory, and literary studies.
