L’ Handbook of Public Communication of Science and Technology è stato pubblicato in un’edizione rivista e aggiornata (Routledge, 2014; 258 pagine), comprensiva di nuovi capitoli.

Oltre ai due curatori, M. Bucchi e B. Trench, tra le firme che hanno collaborato al manuale ci sono M. Bauer, B. Lewenstein, H. P. Peters e M. Nisbet. L’Handbook fornisce un quadro esauriente della comunicazione della scienza e della tecnologia, descrivendone i principali attori, pratiche e contesti. In quest’ultima e ampliata versione, un’attenzione particolare è data agli aspetti più globali e ai nuovi media digitali, grazie al contributo di nuovi autori.

Si ricorda che la prima edizione è invece uscita in versione paperback e eBook.

handbook“Massimiano Bucchi, Brian Trench, and the world-leading group of authors they have assembled give us a one-stop text vital to anyone who is seriously interested in the field of science communication. The chapters are highly informative and thought-provoking, providing a basis for well-informed discussion and debate around issues that are central to understanding how non-expert audiences can find out about and engage with science, technology, engineering, and medicine. The international scope of the book gives it an appeal to the science-communication community across the world.”  (Professore Steven Miller, University College London, UK)

“This work provides a useful introduction to the study of research trends in the public communication of science and technology. It is particularly strong in showing the changes in this field […] With editors and contributors from various parts of the world, the book is particularly sensitive to international issues… Highly recommended.” (Recensione della prima edizione in Choice – American Library Association)

“This informative as well as formative book will foster the knowledge of those entering the science-communication field and those already well-established in it, and may even influence their actions in such an important field.” (Recensione della prima edizione in Public Understanding of Science)
