Science for Society: A Bibliography, Third Edition.
Bausum, Howard T.
Considering all aspects of the interrelations of man, society, environment, science, and technology, this bibliography is offered as an aid to those concerned with the social problems that have arisen from, or been aggravated by, advances in the technological applications of scientific knowledge. It should be useful for teachers and students, in secondary schools and colleges, seeking information and ideas for program instruction or breadth of learning. References are about evenly divided between books and periodical literature, and about three-fourths are 1971 publications. The more than 3,000 entries are arranged under six main topics and sub-topics: general references; science, technology, society; resources and the environment; education; health; and conflict and population. Comments at the beginning of each section provide an overview of its content and suggest other categories that contain closely related references. Brief notes about content are included for some, but not all, of the publications. Titles intended primarily for experts in a particular field or for elementary and preschool children are avoided, although a few titles of value for the junior high school level are annotated "for the young." Key references are starred and intended as suggested starting points for reading and obtaining further references on the topic. (BL)
