about

The present anthology, edited by Marcel Herbst, is partially based on a conference, held in 2009, to reflect on the legacy of Ben-David, and contains a selection of substantially revised papers, plus four contributions specifically written for this volume. The book focuses on three major lines of Ben-David's research, namely "Center and Periphery" (Part I), "Role and Ethos" (Part II), and "Organization and Growth" (Part III). In addition, comprehensive introductory ("Prologue") and concluding chapters ("Epilogue", Part IV) by Marcel Herbst are provided. The volume addresses the following disciplines: higher education, history and sociology of science, philosophy of science, history of medicine, public administration, policy studies, Jewish studies, and economics. The anthology is one of two new publications on Joseph Ben-David after the special Minerva edition Vol. 25, Numbers 1-2, March 1987, and Gad Freudenthal's collection of Ben-David's writings [1991]. The text can be used in graduate studies, it addresses higher education professionals or public officials, and serves as a gateway to researchers in the field of higher education, science studies, or policy sciences.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This volume . honors the enduring contributions and legacy of Joseph Ben-David (1920-1986), renowned for his work related to the sociology of science. . This would be useful to librarians, educators, clinicians, and researchers interested in the sociology of scientific research and history of science. . Readers interested in understanding the shift of academic scientific research from Italy to England to France to Germany to the United States will appreciate the framework and context this work offers . ."
