New STS Stuff

Interesting new books seem to come in threes...

Recently across my desk (I'll put in links later if I get the chance):

Wenda K. Bauchspies, Jennifer Croissant, & Sal Restivo (2006) Science, Technology, and Society: A Sociological Approach. Malden, MA: Blackwell.

David Bell (2006). Science, Technology, and Culture. NY: Open University Press.

Mike Michael (2006). Technoscience and Everyday Life: The Complex Simplicities of the Mundane. NY: Open University Press.

The first two are more obviously intro/textbooky kind of things. The latter less directly so.

Oh books ... do you have more details on the Mike Michael book? Is that actually his name? Poor guy. Anyway, I couldn't locate it via Amazon US or UK. Thanks! Greg

Link to the OUP website for the Michael book, which has another link to the TOC.

OK, OK,
only click the "Login and Publish" key ONCE.

Anyway, Jennifer and my Culture and Technology book didn't show up on Amazon for a while after it came up (issues with the distributor I think).
