Abstract

Introducing the Routledge Handbook of the Political Economy of Science, this chapter summarizes the crisis of the neoliberal knowledge economy across several dimensions, and points to new avenues of enquiry and engaged research, highlighting the work illustrated in the subsequent chapters. It concludes that the political economy of research and innovation is a key but neglected dimension of politics in the 21st century.
