The first edition of A History of Science in Society was an impressive achievement that provided a most welcome and accessible textbook. The third edition continues this fine tradition. Over the years, my students have valued the clarity and rigour of this book, which has allowed them to better grasp the meanings of some of the more difficult concepts in the history of science.(Nathan Brooks, New Mexico State University)
The excellent new edition of A History of Science in Society is an achievement. Readable and comprehensive, it provides welcome changes that round out the material towards a more global narrative, enhance student learning, and apply classic themes about the connections between science, technology, and society to the twenty-first-century world … Well-written and thoughtfully presented, the text is eminently suitable for introductory undergraduate courses in the global history of science and technology.(Tara Abraham, University of Guelph)
