One of the first and premier specialists in the sociology of science presents seventeen published and unpublished essays in Social Studies of Science. This rich volume is introduced by a long essay, "The Multiple, Diverse, and Unexpected Origins of the Sociology of Science," a sociological analysis of the fifty years of development of what has finally become the fully realized field of the sociology of science. Barber's personal connection with this development makes this analytical essay a vivid contribution to the history of sociology.
