The embryo research debate : science and the politics of reproduction by M. J Mulkay( Book )

17 editions published in 1997 in English and German and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scientific research involving human embryos was a major topic of public debate in Britain during the 1980s. Despite strong support from the scientific community, embryo research was initially condemned by many ordinary people as well as by special interest groups, and came close to being banned by Act of Parliament. Michael Mulkay describes the dynamics of the parliamentary struggle over the future of embryo research, focusing on such issues as: the clash between the anti-abortion and pro-research lobbies; the tactics of the Government; political ideology; the media's role; the importance of gender; religion; the impact of science fiction; the lure of medical advance; and the difficulty of maintaining ethical control. He explains how the advocates of embryo research eventually triumphed, and ends with an examination of the cultural tensions which linger after the debate

Health and efficiency : a sociology of health economics by Malcolm Ashmore( Book )

9 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Health and efficiency explores the difficulties encountered by health economists with and within the National Health Service, and examines how succesful they are in overcoming them. Health economists are committed not only to understanding and developing the economics of health care but also to the practical task of improving the provision of health care services. However, despite the growing sophistication of economic problems in health care, health economists have actually found it far from easy to achieve the kind of impact they might have expected. This book explores how they work with and for the National Health Service and how they (and others) perceive their roles, their strategies and their techniques, and why they are so often frustrated in trying to introduce their thinking into the NHS

Science and the Sociology of Knowledge by M. J Mulkay( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How far is scientific knowledge a product of social life? In addressing this question, the major contributors to the sociology of knowledge have agreed that the conclusions of science are dependent on social action only in a very special and limited sense. In Science and the Sociology of Knowledge Michael Mulkay''s first aim is to identify the philosophical assumptions which have led to this view of science as special; and to present a systematic critique of the standard philosophical account of science, showing that there are no valid epistemological grounds for excluding scientific
"Functionalism, Exchange and Theoretical Strategy (RLE Social Theory)" by M. J Mulkay( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

M.J. Mulkay traces the development of certain recent versions of functionalism and exchange theory in sociology, with special attention to ''theoretical strategy''. He uses this term to refer to the policies which theorists adopt to ensure that their work contributes to their long range theoretical objectives. Such strategies are important, he believes, because they place limits on the theories with which they are associated. He shows how each of the theorists he studies devised a new strategy to replace the unsuccessful policies of a prior theory in a process of ''strategical dialectic''
