Ziman is well known for a series of lucid books on the nature of science. His An Introduction to Science Studies (1985) is regarded as one of the best overviews and presentations of science/technology/ society studies. This and other works have earned him a reputation as the best British interpreter of science for college to Gerald Holton of the United States. An active member of the Council for Science and Society, Ziman remains an influential supporter of the formulation of a social model of science for use by science educators.

book by John M. Ziman. An Introduction to Science Studies : The Philosophical and Social Aspects of Science and Technology.

Professor Ziman provides a coherent account of the different perspectives on science and technology that are normally studied under various disciplinary heads such as philosophy of science, sociology of science, and science policy. It is intended for students embarking on courses in these subjects and assumes no special knowledge of any science. It is written in a direct and simple style, and technical language is seldom introduced. It will appeal to students in a wide range of scientific disciplines and complements Professor Ziman's earlier books.
