This topical and unique book draws together the three key perspectives on science-society relations: public understanding of science, scientific and public governance, and social theory. The book presents a series of case studies (including the debates on genetically modified foods and the AIDS movement in the USA) to discuss critically the ways in which social theorists, social scientists, and science policy makers deal with science-society relations.

Seite x - Society's relationship with science is in a critical phase. Science today is exciting, and full of opportunities. Yet public confidence in scientific advice has been rocked by BSE; and many people are uneasy about the rapid advance of areas such as biotechnology and IT - even though for everyday purposes they take science and technology for granted. This crisis of confidence is of great importance both to British society and to British science.
