Abstract

All major contemporary social issues involve questions of power, social positioning, identity, and social knowledge construction. The complex interplay between these becomes apparent when one considers examples such as immigration, minority groups, biotechnology, and health. All these examples appear in the present book. The social sciences have researched these issues considerably, so one could reasonably ask what is different about the collection of papers presented here
