About this book
"In this well-written and compelling book, the authors not only analyse the flows and stoppages of attempts to carry out interdisciplinary work and do so with uncommon honesty based on their own extensive experience but also map out ways to embark on interdisciplinary projects across the sciences, social sciences, and humanities in the future that would simultaneously honour all participants' contributions and produce knowledge that could not have been done alone. The social and technical problems that beset the contemporary world require no less." - Charis Thompson, Chancellor's Professor and Chair, Center for Science, Technology, and Medicine in Society, UC Berkeley, USA and Professor of Sociology, London School of Economics, UK.
