Professor of Urban & Environmental Policy & Planning



Sheldon Krimsky's books provide a critical examinaton of breaking issues in science and technology. Some of these works explore the questions that were being asked, the policy options that were available, and the decisions that were being made when the commercial applications of genetic technologies were still in their infancy. His works cover the fields of biology and social issues; science studies; technology and society; social management of risk; and the sociology of science. These books are for those readers who are interested in the social assessment and management of new technologies, science and ethics, and the normative dimensions and moral implications of science in its social context.
