Shelanski, Vivien, Ed.
Three special features related to increasing attention given to the relationships between scientific and social, political, moral and legal issues are presented. One article is presented which questions whether the traditional scientific norms provided adequate guidance for scientists in their interaction with public officials, the news media, and their employers. Another article examines the effects of contemporary pressures on the boundaries and internal structure of the scientific enterprise. Key works in the burgeoning literature on law and science are contained in an extensive bibliography. News items and additional general bibliographical information are included. (EB)
