Review:

This ambitious and far-reaching book transforms the way we think about the production, distribution, and consumption of the benefits and burdens of science and technology. David Hess uses anthropological perspectives and studies to retell the story of the multiple and contested histories, social relations, and forms of knowledge embedded in scientific practices. His book synthesizes many valuable resources for those of us who practice, learn, or teach science as part of contemporary life.
