Science and Social Inequality: Feminist and Postcolonial Issues
University of Illinois Press, 2006 - 205 páginas

She defends this claim by exposing theways that hierarchical social formations in modern Western sciencesencode antidemocratic principles and practices, particularly in terms oftheir services to militarism, the impoverishment and alienation of labour, Western expansion, and environmental destruction
