Synopsis: Examines modern science, looks at scientific literature, and discusses the growth of science, invisible colleges, and the process of discovery

From Library Journal: In its first (1963) edition, Little Science, Big Science explored the then fantastic expansion of resources devoted to the advancement of science, and the social significance of that phenomenon. The current edition contains nine additional essays that delve further into the same themes. The original papers touch on rules theoretically governing the life cycle and behavior of science. The newer essays compare the "hard" and "soft" sciences, discuss the larger issues of international scientific networking and "invisible colleges," and examine the methodology of the scientific experimenter and the growth of high technology. This excellent work combines one of Price's earlier tours de force with a good selection of his insightful later writings. Highly recommended for scientists, historians and sociologists of science, and information science professionals. Robert Paustian, Wilkes Coll . Lib . , Wilkes-Barre, Pa.
