In the modern globalized world, some estimates suggest that around 40 million people now work in jobs that ‘translate’ or mediate advances in social science research for use in business, government and public agencies, health care systems, and civil society organizations. Many large corporations and organizations across these sectors in the United States are increasingly prioritizing access to social science knowledge. Yet the impacts of university social science continue to be fiercely disputed. This key study demonstrates the essential role of university social science in the ‘human-dominated’ and ‘human-influenced’ systems now central to our civilization. It focuses empirically on Britain, the second most influential country for social science research after the US. Using in-depth research the authors show how the growth of a services economy, and the success of previous scientific interventions, mean that key areas of advance for corporations, public policy-makers and citizens alike now depend on our ability to understand our complex societies and economies. This is a landmark study in the evidence-based analysis of social science impacts.
Foreword in the US edition "The Impact of the Social Sciences in the UK – A View from the US" is by Kenneth Prewitt, Columbia University.

What difference does it make?" In one form or another, that question is at the core of virtually all social science research. This book reverses the lens and asks, "What differences do social sciences and scientists themselves make on public policy and how?" The answers found here offer thought provoking insights for academics and researchers interested in how the methods and findings of social science can transmit from the cloisters of academia to the real world of policy impact.(Brian Baird 2013-12-10)
