Reviews

"How very exciting to see the next generation of science studies come into existence.. This thorough volume contains many perspectives and points of view and should be very useful for the next generation of feminists and scientists alike. My congratulations to the editors for putting together such a wonderful volume." -- Anne Fausto-Sterling, Professor of Biology and Women's Studies, Brown University

"This volume brims with new voices-of feminist scientists and of scholars in feminist science studies-building on previous accomplishments in the field. These essays, which integrate insights from feminism and from social and cultural studies of science, take the field forward in research and pedagogy." -- Helen E. Longino, Professor of Women's Studies and Philosophy, University of Minnesota

"This action-packed anthology is absolutely bursting with insight and intelligence. An eloquent and passionate tribute to the energy of feminist science studies, it is also a must- read contribution to it, which will reshape the agendas of this field for years to come. The voices in each chapter jump right off the page and it is clear this book acquired a life of its own in the making. This is an outstanding compilation." -- Sarah Franklin, Professor of Sociology, Lancaster University

"Passion, energy, and excitement are evident in Feminist Science Studies." -- Feminist Collections

"…the editors of Feminist Science Studies define the purposes of feminist inquiry in the sciences as more comprehensive-to enrich and redirect science, to be sure, but also to enrich and redirect feminist inquiry…in general the contributions are solid and useful, many excellent." -- Signs

"Feminist Science Studies is a lighthouse for those intent on traveling beyond their laboratories, a source of information for those who challenge the hegemonic epistemology of value-free research, and an asset for all scholars who deeply value the kind of scientific inquiry that breaks the power of gender." -- Hyapatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy
