"Massimiano Bucchi, Brian Trench, and the world-leading group of authors they have assembled give us a one-stop text vital to anyone who is seriously interested in the field of science communication. The chapters are highly informative and thought-provoking, providing a basis for well-informed discussion and debate around issues that are central to understanding how non-expert audiences can find out about and engage with science, technology, engineering, and medicine. The international scope of the book gives it an appeal to the science-communication community across the world." Professor Steven Miller, University College London, UK
"This work provides a useful introduction to the study of research trends in the public communication of science and technology. It is particularly strong in showing the changes in this field […] With editors and contributors from various parts of the world, the book is particularly sensitive to international issues… Highly recommended."
Review of the first edition in Choice (American Library Association)
"This informative as well as formative book will foster the knowledge of those entering the science-communication field and those already well-established in it, and may even influence their actions in such an important field."
Review of the first edition in Public Understanding of Science
"The range and depth of the work make it extremely useful for all scholars concerned with the fate of science in an environment that requires increasing specialization, causing a detachment between scientists and laypersons. Further, the work provides important global context to the issue of scientific communication.Summing Up: Highly recommended. All academic and professional audiences." -G. D. Oberle III, George Mason University, CHOICE Reviews, February 2015
"Routledge Handbook of Public Communication of Science and Technology, Second Edition is a superb collection of articles covering contemporary issues in science communication. The book’s theme is society’s relationship with science and the many factors that influence and complicate this relationship." – Diane Martinez, assistant professor of professional and technical communication, Western Carolina University
