In this text, John Willinsky uses modern social issues and historical precedents to demonstrate that the social sciences can and should contribute far more to public knowledge than they have in the past. We have the technologies, Willinksy demonstrates, and need only the determination to create a public resource out of social research that can extend democratic participation and self-determination, as well as improve research's focus and public support. The book offers examples of why and how this is not only possible but necessary, in the face of knowledge-based economies and a withering public sector.
