Review quote

'A highly original choice of subject matter ... the book is an exciting adventure in alternative ways of looking at science.' Public Understand Science 'This is a real heavyweight work of high academic quality. It, no doubt, marks a milestone in the development of feminist theory globally.' Scientists for Global Responsibility Newsletter

'Remarkable for its clarity in a field where recent literature has often been barely comprehensible - particularly to students.' Times Higher Education Supplement

'Immensely readable and lively. It was a constant delight to read and Hilary Rose managed to sustain the reader's interest throughout every page ... the book is important as well as engaging.' Sociology

'This is a richly informed interdisciplinary work which anyone interested in science needs to read.' Women's Philosophy Review

' 'In characteristically challenging and exciting style Hilary Rose has produced, in Love, Power and Knowledge, a 'tour de force' of feminist sociological critique of the social and biological sciences ... enormously wide ranging ... a thoroughly academic and scholarly journey demonstrating all that is exciting about rigorous but politically informed scholarship.' Contemporary Politics
