Science for Society: A Bibliography, Fourth Edition.
West, Felicia E.
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 especially useful to secondary school teachers in assisting them to broaden their programs to include man, science, and technology. The references can provide source material for in-depth study in various topics, new ideas for curriculum development, information for teachers who are in need of assistance in areas outside their fields, and suggestions for library materials. The entries are arranged under six main topics: general references; science, technology, and society; resources and the environment; education; health; and conflicts and population. Comments at the beginning of each section provide an overview of its content, and the listed publications are accompanied by brief descriptive annotations. A new feature of the fourth edition of the bibliography is the subject/author index which enables the user to locate quickly references for specific topics. (JR)
