Review

"This volume represents the social constructivist turn of the field. It is evident that social constructivism made a major impact on the field during the 1970s and 1980s. The diverse papers included here highlight the role of ethnography in STS. In addition, we are exposed to new perspectives of the multicultural and gendered nature of knowledge production."

(SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY & SOCIETY)

"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"
