Localist movements in a global economy : sustainability, justice, and urban development in the United States by David J Hess( Book )

15 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 1990s, more than 100 local business organizations have formed in the United States, and there are growing efforts to build local ownership in the retail, food, energy, transportation, and media industries. In this first social science study of localism, Hess adopts an interdisciplinary approach that combines theoretical reflection, empirical research, and policy analysis. His perspective is not that of an uncritical localist advocate; he draws on his new empirical research to assess the extent to which localist policies can address sustainability and justice issues

"Collection of essays written by Brazilian and American scholars considers many aspects of Brazilian society and culture. Divided into four sections: 'Brazilian Styles of Social Relations,' 'Race, Class, and Gender in a Changing Culture,' 'Ideologies and Cultures on an International Stage,' and 'Brazilian Society: Macrostructures in Comparative Perspective.' Essays share a comparative and cultural perspective, bringing out the hierarchical and personalistic structures of Brazilian society"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57
Good green jobs in a global economy : making and keeping new industries in the United States by David J Hess( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After describing federal green energy initiatives in the first two years of the Obama administration, Hess turns his attention to the state and local levels, examining demand-side and supply-side support for green industry and local small business. He analyzes the successes and failures of green coalitions and the partisan patterns of support for green energy reform. This new piecemeal green industrial policy, Hess argues, signals a fundamental challenge to anti-interventionist beliefs about the relationship between the government and the economy."--Publisher description

Science studies : an advanced introduction by David J Hess( Book )

15 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Science Studies is the first comprehensive survey of the field, combining a concise overview of key concepts with an original and integrated framework. In the process of bringing disparate fields together under one tent, Hess realizes the full promise of science studies, long uncomfortably squeezed into traditional disciplines. He provides a clear discussion of the issues and misunderstandings that have arisen in these interdisciplinary conversations. His survey is up to date and includes recent developments in philosophy, sociology, anthropology, history, cultural studies, and feminist studies." "By moving from the discipline-bound blinders of a sociology, history, philosophy, or anthropology of science to a transdisciplinary field, science studies, Hess believes, will provide crucial conceptual tools for public discussions about the role of science and technology in a democratic society."--Jacket

Alternative pathways in science and industry : activism, innovation, and the environment in an era of globalization by David J Hess( Book )

17 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work combines theoretical discussion and case studies to demonstrate how social movements and related activism have affected innovation in science, technology, and industry in the United States. In "Alternative Pathways in Science and Industry", David Hess examines how social movements and other forms of activism affect innovation in science, technology, and industry. Synthesizing and extending work in social studies of science and technology, social movements, and globalization, Hess explores the interaction of grassroots environmental action and mainstream industry and offers a conceptual framework for understanding it. Hess proposes a theory of scientific and technological change that considers the roles that both industry and grassroots consumers play in setting the research agenda in science and technology, and he identifies "alternative pathways" by which social movements can influence scientific and technological innovation.He analyzes four of these pathways: industrial opposition movements, organized against targeted technologies (as in the campaign against nuclear energy); technology- and product-oriented movements, which press for alternatives (as does the organic food movement); localism, which promotes local ownership (as in "buy-local" campaigns); and access pathways, which support a more equitable distribution of resources. Within each pathway, Hess examines reforms in five different areas: agriculture, energy, waste and manufacturing, infrastructure, and finance. The book's theoretical argument and empirical evidence demonstrate the complex pattern of incorporation (of grassroots innovations) and transformation (of alternative ownership structures and the alternative products themselves) that has characterized the relationship of industry and activism. Hess' analysis of alternative pathways to change suggests ways economic organizations could shift to a more just and sustainable course in the twenty-first century

Can bacteria cause cancer? : alternative medicine confronts big science by David J Hess( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Growing numbers of cancer patients are exploring diet, food supplements, herbs, and nontoxic immunotherapies like bacterial vaccines as a means of therapy. Yet most cancer research organizations refuse to even evaluate these alternatives. Can Bacteria Cause Cancer? argues convincingly that unless this neglected world of alternative therapies is properly scrutinized, the medical Vietnam of the twentieth century may well affect one in two people by the twenty-first century. David J. Hess investigates one of the great medical mysteries of the twentieth century--the relationship between bacteria an

Fields of knowledge : science, politics and publics in the neoliberal age by Scott Frickel( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This issue of Political power and social theory explores the changes in science associated with the rise of neoliberalism since the 1970s. The neoliberalization of science has complicated interactions among states, markets, and civil society, often in ways that challenge major assumptions underlying decades of research. The articles collected here break with older Mertonian sociologies of science and constructivist micro-sociologies of scientific knowledge to examine the meso-level problem of the changing institutional contexts of the scientific field as originally identified by Pierre Bourdieu. Papers presented in Part I extend Bourdieús relational approach to the broader set of interactions among scientific, regulatory, industry, and social movement fields. Part II extends Bourdieu's concern with order and the scientific habitus to the changing patterns of scientific practices under neoliberalism. By reconceptualizing the central problem for the social studies of science as the political sociological problem of field and inter-field dynamics, the collected papers chart an important theoretical agenda for future research in the study of science-society relations
