Routledge has just published the Handbook of Public Communication of Science and Technology, edited by Massimiano Bucchi (University of Trento, member of the Public Communication of Science and Technology Network) and Brian Trench (Dublin City University, member of the Public Communication of Science and Technology Network).
Comprehensive yet accessible, this key book provides up-to-date overviews of the fast growing and increasingly important area of ‘public communication of science and technology’. The contributors convincingly demonstrate that science communication in not merely something that one ‘does’, but is in fact an intellectual field of its own whose practitioners can enrich and enhance their activities by exploring the conceptual challenges posed by the field…This book will be THE standard text and research starting-point for years to come. (Bruce Lewenstein, Cornell University, USA).
Contributors: Sharon Dunwoody, Jon Turney, Bernard Schiele, Martin Bauer, Hans Peter Peters, Federico Neresini, Giuseppe Pellegrini, Alan Irwin, Steven Yearley, Hesther du Plessis, Edna Einsiediel, Robert Logan, David Kirby, Rick Borchelt, Iina Helsten, Brigitte Nehrlich, Angela Cassidy.
