Transnational environmental policy : reconstructing ozone by Reiner Grundmann( )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Transnational Environmental Policy analyses a surprising success story in the field of international environmental policy making: the threat to the ozone layer posed by industrial chemicals and how it has been averted. The book also raises the more general question about problem-solving capacities of industrialised countries and the world society as a whole."
Marxism and ecology by Reiner Grundmann( Book )

10 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Grundmann argues that Marx's theory of human nature and his evolutionary thinking are cogent tools for understanding basic traits of industrial countries and the ecological problems they produce. He challenges the widespread belief that the development of productive forces is by itself a threat to the environment, arguing that only specific technologies, not technology as such, lead to environmental degradation. He concludes that the pursuit of productivity and the development of a healthy environment need not be mutually exclusive.--Provided by publisher
The power of scientific knowledge : from research to public policy by Reiner Grundmann( Book )

13 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is often said that knowledge is power, but more often than not relevant knowledge is not used when political decisions are made. This book examines how political decisions relate to scientific knowledge and what factors determine the success of scientific research in influencing policy. The authors take a comparative and historical perspective and refer to well-known theoretical frameworks, but the focus of the book is on three case studies: the discourse of racism, Keynesianism, and climate change. These cases cover a number of countries and different time periods. In all three the authors see a close link between 'knowledge producers' and political decision makers, but show that the effectiveness of the policies varies dramatically. This book will be of interest to scientists, decision makers and scholars alike"--
Experts : the knowledge and power of expertise by Nico Stehr( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Stehr and Grundmann outline the theoretical significance and practical importance of the growing stratum of experts, counsellors and advisors in contemporary society, and claim that the growing spectrum of knowledge-based occupations has led to the pluralisation of expertise. As decision makers in organizations and private citizens, for various reasons, increasingly seek advice from experts, the authors examine the nature of expert activity, and suggest that the role of experts needs to be distinguised from other roles such as
