Editorial Reviews

Review

In Ideas, Machines, and Values, Stephen Cutcliffe skillfully introduces the reader to the disciplines, institutions, and individuals that have contributed to the development of Science, Technology, and Society Studies. More than a summation of prior work, this book shows how STS can make significant contributions to academic and public life. An essential guide for students, teachers, and members of the general public seeking a deeper understanding of the interrelations of science, technology, and society. (Rudi Volti)

In five succinct chapters, [Cutcliffe] covers the historical emergence of STS in academe, its relationships with history, sociology, and the philosophy of science and technology, its institutional manifestations, and current and future intellectual issues and trends. Together, the notes and bibliography constitute a major resource for the creation of course outlines, reading lists, and research agendas. Cutcliffe's introduction to programs, institutions, and journals is a neophyte's handy guide to the field. He has been personally involved from the earliest years, has communicated directly with many of the participants, and has read nearly everything pertinent, and so this slim volume is truly a tour d'horizon. (Technology And Culture)

Cutcliffe's book is to date the most comprehensive and balanced examination of an increasingly important interdisciplinary field of research. This work cannot help but advance the self-understanding of STS studies. (Mitcham, Carl)

It is a good overall look at the field of STS, however it is a bit dry and references a lot of other works. Overall good to gain an idea of what STS is but takes a long drawn out way of doing so
