“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.” (Professor 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.” (Review of the first edition 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.” (Review of the first edition in Public Understanding of Science)
