Product Description

Ireland is a small country but it has a unique social history and a legacy of significant contributions to scientific and technological development. For all the assumed internationalism of science, it has long been recognised that its practice is constrained and influenced by local political, economic and cultural influences.

The stimulating articles collected in Science and Society in Ireland: The Social Context of Science and Technology in Ireland 1800-1950 exhibit the wide ranging nature of the history of science and technology in Ireland. Some of the authors disagree, others challenge popular misconceptions: all show an area offering exciting fields of study which should stimulate further study and debate.
