Between politics and science : assuring the integrity and productivity of research by David H Guston( Book )
16 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 414 libraries worldwide
"In this book, David H. Guston combines political-economic, sociological, and historical insights to analyze the ways the integrity and productivity of research are negotiated in the United States. He shows how. after World War II, a "social contract for science" assumed integrity and productivity were the automatic products of unfettered scientific inquiry. Surveying four decades of controversies in science policy, Guston demonstrates how this assumption endured inquiries into the loyalty, the financial Accountability, and the technological goals of scientists."--Jacket

Encyclopedia of nanoscience and society by David H Guston( Book )
7 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 153 libraries worldwide
"Labeled either as the 'next industrial revolution' or as just 'hype', nanoscience and nanotechnologies are controversial, touted by some as the likely engines of spectacular transformation of human societies and even human bodies, and by others as conceptually flawed. These challenges make an encyclopedia of nanoscience and society an absolute necessity. Providing a guide to what these understandings and challenges are about, the Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Society offers accessible descriptions of some of the key technical achievements of nanoscience along with its history and prospects. Rather than a technical primer, this encyclopedia instead focuses on the efforts of governments around the world to fund nanoscience research and to tap its potential for economic development as well as to assess how best to regular a new technology for the environmental, occupational, and consumer health and safety issues related to the field. Contributions examine and analyze the cultural significance of nanoscience and nanotechnologies and describe some of the organizations, and their products, that promise to make nanotechnologies a critical part of the global economy. Written by noted scholars and practitioners from around the globe, these two volumes offer nearly 500 entries describing the societal aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology."--Publisher's description

The yearbook of nanotechnology in society by Erik Fisher( file )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The ideas and imagery about the future that characterize nanotechnology today are shaped by multiple values and agendas which influence public investments, business strategies, infrastructure design, and public debate. Presenting Futures highlights a variety of ways that nanotechnology actors think about and seek to shape the future. It brings together social scientists, humanists, government officials, activist groups, designers, and public relations professionals into a multifaceted and at times conflicting dialogue through press releases, government reports, and advertisements taken from the front lines of the political discourse over nanotechnology, as well as original writings that situate nanotechnological futures within broader contexts. The chapters in this volume document various approaches to the future and how contemporary cultural conceptions about science, technology, and society are created and ultimately influence our own cognitive frames, social contests, and material practices. More than a catalogue of visions, the Yearbook is designed to give social scientists, natural scientists, and the general public an opportunity to explore, reflect on, and ultimately critique these futures. In asking not so much what the future of nanotechnology may be, but rather how different social groups and organizations imagine and anticipate it, the Yearbook offers a series of starting points for exploring the role of the future in the present
