What Reviewers Are Saying
"Eight years after "Laboratory Life" first came out, it is still one of my favourite books on the social studies of science. . . . [F]or those in the business of reflecting on the nature of science who have not yet read "Laboratory Life," here is a good opportunity to catch up and do so."--Ditta Bartels, "Metascience" ""Laboratory Life" succeeds and will continue to succeed, and to win friends and allies, because it contains good, persuasive ideas, such as the analyses of modalities and of splitting. These ideas have been generated by excellent social scientists. All the rest is so much window undressing."--H. M. Collins, "Isis" "The pioneering 'laboratory study' in the sociology of scientific knowledge. . . . The first and, deservedly, the most influential book-length account of day-to-day work in a single laboratory setting."--"ISIS"
