About the Author

Amit Prasad is Associate Professor of Sociology at Georgia Tech University.


"Prasad is a nimble and quick thinker. In this ambitious project, he weaves an engaging and highly readable discussion of what science is, why it is questioned, how we tell its history, and how we do this within a colonial frame."
Gabriela Soto Laveaga, Harvard University

"Amit Prasad has long been a major contributor to the vibrant field of postcolonial science studies. Those interested in the persistence of colonialism and the shadows it casts into the present will find much here to discuss and debate."
