About this book

Through case studies, theoretical research and interviews with leading players in science and governance, this book introduces a new understanding of change in governance of bioscience research. In particular it examines change as it is shaped by approaches developed by Science and Technology Studies and Sociology of Scientific Knowledge theorists.

Reviews

"This small book ... [will] be of interest, or even a source of enlightenment, to those pathologists who worked through the 'tissue retention' crisis of the opening years of this millennium and are still wondering 'How on earth did that happen to us?' ... The book is well written." - Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists

"Bioscience, Governance and Politics is a captivating and provocative read. Scholars in medical law, STS, SSK, policy studies and political science will enjoy the narrative presentation." - Medical Law Review

"The original research presented in the book is fascinating, its strength being the interviews with science governance's key players ... Bioscience, Governance and Politics is a fascinating and important book for anyone interested in the governance of bioscience in the UK or the more general issues of the uses and abuses of 'the public' in policymaking." - BioNews
