This thoughtful and engaging text challenges the widely held notion of science as somehow outside of society, and the idea that technology proceeds automatically down a singular and inevitable path. Through specific case studies involving contemporary debates, this book shows that science and technology are fundamentally part of society and are shaped by it. Draws on concepts from political sociology, organizational analysis, and contemporary social theory. Avoids dense theoretical debate. Includes case studies and concluding chapter summaries for students and scholars.

Published in cooperation with the Society for Social Studies of Science For the most current, comprehensive resource in this rapidly evolving field, look no further than the Handbook of Science and Technology Studies. This masterful volume is the first resource in over 15 years to define, summarize, and synthesize this complex multidisciplinary, international field. Tightly edited with contributions by an internationally recognized team of leading scholars, this volume addresses the crucial contemporary issues-both traditional and nonconventional-social studies, political studies, and humanistic studies in this changing field. Containing theoretical essays, extensive literature reviews, and detailed case studies, this remarkable volume clearly sets the standard for the field. It does nothing less than establish itself as the benchmark, one that will carry the field well into the next century. "The long-awaited Handbook of Science and Technology Studies--sponsored by the Society for Social Studies of Science is a truly substantial work, both in size and in the breadth of its many contributions. It is a rich and valuable guide to much that is transpiring in the field of Science and Technology Studies. In the editors words, it is 'an unconventional but arresting atlas of the field at a particular moment in its history'" --Science, Technology & Society "This book is not only an important resource for practitioners, but it also may help to spark the curiosity of those who are outside the field--including scientists and engineers themselves--and so pull the "half-seen world' of science and technology studies even more fully into the light of day." --American Scientist "The book as a whole is an impressive testimony to the vitality of a burgeoning field." -New Scientist "It reflects the international and interdisciplinary nature of the society. An excellent resource" --Choice
