Description - Science, Technology, and Society by Wenda Bauchspies

Science, Technology, and Society: A Sociological Approach is a comprehensive guide to the emergent field of science, technology, and society studies and its implications for today's culture and society. Written in an accessible style, and designed especially for students, the book emphasizes the sociological sciences as the foundation for STS studies. It opens with a discussion of current STS topics, research tools, and theories, and tackles some of the most urgent issues on the STS agenda: power and culture, race, gender, colonialism, the internet, cyborgs and robots, and biotechnology. Case studies highlight particular ideas and their practical application. A glossary and further reading suggestions complete Science, Technology, and Society, making it an indispensable introduction to a controversial area of inquiry.
