The modern world places a great deal of faith in the objectivity of science. In this strikingly original collection of six extended essays, historian Londa Schiebinger reveals the powerful sexual and racial preconceptions with which early scientists infused their studies, preconceptions which profoundly affect the way science is practised today. Compelling history and reasoned analysis combine in these essays to form a highly charged and persuasive argument for the restructuring modern science must undergo if it is truly to attain the objectivity it claims. 289pp. Index. Bibliography. Size: 8vo Medium (8" x 5½" approx.)
