"An important contribution to the growing new subdiscipline of the anthropology of science."--David Hess, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute "Stacia Zabusky has set herself the difficult task of describing how teams and individuals work together on highly complex and costly technical projects that require the dedicated cooperation of experts drawn from diverse national, linguistic, and cultural backgrounds. Modern methods of managing such efforts are apparent, but how far have we actually come since the Tower of Babel? That question makes Zabusky's book so universal and interesting."--Martin Harwit, National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian InstitutionZabusky, Stacia E. is the author of 'Launching Europe An Ethnography of European Cooperation in Space Science' with ISBN 9780691029726 and ISBN 0691029725.
