Congratulations to Steve Epstein whose book Inclusion: The Politics of Difference in Medical Research has been awarded the Eliot Freidson Outstanding Publication Award for 2008 by the ASA’s Medical Sociology Section. (July ’08)
Previously, this book won the Robert K. Merton Professional Award from the ASA’s Section on Science Knowledge and Technology. Professor Epstein’s first book, Impure Science: AIDS, Activism and the Politics of Knowledge had also been so honored. In fact, Professor Epstein is the only scholar ever to win this prestigious award TWICE.
