Editorial Reviews

Review

There is no comparable anthology in which so many [science studies classics] can be accessed so conveniently... It is easy to predict a bright future for the collection as assigned reading for seminars in interdisciplinary science studies, and indeed I have already put it to use successfully in just that way. -- Jan Golinsky, Isis
Catalog Blurb. -- Bulletin of Science, Technology & Science
Collecting the founding articles of science studies all in one place, for the first time...The Science Studies Reader is essential reading for anyone interested in science and technolgy. There is simply nothing else like it. -- Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, June 2001

Format: Paperback
This is the book that has gathered together all the most annoying people in science studies -- especially the ones who flog the dead horse of 'practise'without considering the larger social and political contexts that have made the Science Wars such a hot issue. I would advise so-called Science Warriors looking for an easy target to look no further than this arboreal sacrifice. Everyone else: check out David Hess's introduction to science studies for something more reasonable and Steve Fuller's book on Kuhn for something really challenging.

The other review is a hoax! Lady Bracknell is a character in a play by Oscar Wilde. You dummies!

Actually, I just read Biagioli's collection, and the review below does seem most accurate. Some of the puzzles were quite complex; and the texture of the paper was outstanding. Bravo Lady Bracknell. A review worth reading! And bravo Mario. Your children should be proud.

Biagioli has done it again! First, the colorfully covered "Galileo, Courtier" taught us all what it means to be alone. And now, with a green and yellow combination, Biagioli teaches us that important lesson we've probably all forgotten by the time we're on our third divorce - of course I mean, it's alright to cry, crying is what makes us people. Laymen and scholar alike will find hours of entertainment in this witty collection of aphorisms and uncut jigsaw puzzles. I know my toddler and I did. Ciao, Winthrop

The green and Yellow Cover suggests it's about a not very good football club from England. Chirp Chirp. I couldn't find any football in it at all - this was dosappointing!
