Review:

This important collection by writers who refuse to stay put in their disciplines cleverly reflects the reader's gaze back onto ourselves to highlight the possibilities of experimentalism in research and pedagogy. Locating interdisciplinary work between scientific and cultural settings that reveal changing concepts of self and society, the contributors call attention to better forms of thinking that might be emerging. A must read for researchers and teachers trying to figure out how best to make a difference.
–Gary Downey, author of The Machine in Me

After the Cold War, comes Cultural Studies. Reid and Traweek give us a thoughtful, rigorous and multi-sited cultural studies. There is much to learn here.
–Paul Rabinow, University of California at Berkeley

This impressive collection is imbued with a fully examined sense of the post-Cold War conditions and new institutional arrangements in which both science and the cultural study of science are produced. It views the sciences as culturally diverse global processes, in which the dominance of Western science cannot be assumed. These features, plus contributions that report the best of current research in this field, make this a unique volume, a stimulating arena of inquiry accessible to a broad readership.
–George E. Marcus, Rice University
