What People are Saying About This

Kelly Moore

This volume is long overdue. Its value is to illuminate the critical role of Science for the People in generating scholarly understandings of how science and technology are shaped by power relations, and to illuminate the ways in which these relationships might be drawn upon to produce a more just society. It will be a very important contribution to the history of science, and to science and technology studies.
