Politics of Social Research
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungPolitics of Social Research addresses the question of the behavior appropriate for social scientists conducting research sponsored by or otherwise involving government agencies our own and those of other countries. The simple patriotism that suggests that social scientists, like other citiens, should not hesitate to put their skills at the service of their government is questioned here and by practitioners. This is partly because of outright disagreement with government policies and partly because of the threat to independence posed by massive government funding. As this book plainly shows, the problems are especially acute for social scientists working abroad, where they are viewed as de facto representatives of American policy while at the same time they must accommodate to the policies of foreign governments.
