About the Author:

Willinsky-Pacifice Press Prof of Literacy & Technology at the University of British Columiba

From Library Journal:

In this remarkably thoughtful book, Willinsky (education, Univ. of British Columbia) explores how the wider dissemination to the general public of research results in the social sciences might lead to marked quality-of-life improvements. Widespread use of the Internet, the author observes, provides an excellent opportunity for social scientists to make their knowledge a public resource to enhance decision making, risk assessment, and democratic participation and, generally, to "help people make greater sense of the world and act on that world." Practicing what he preaches, Willensky (Technologies of Knowing) uses footnotes capably to enhance the reader's engagement in and appreciation of the scholarly process. Chapters on public knowledge, housing knowledge, the social-science ethos, and the risks of knowing, among others, substantiate Willinsky's arguments in this volume, which is highly recommended for both public and academic libraries.DEllen Gilbert, Rutgers Univ., New Brunswick, NJ
