New in paperback. Hardcover was published in 2017. This second edition expands its coverage to discuss the emergence of new fields, the increase of interdisciplinary approaches within traditional disciplines and professions, new integrative approaches to education and training, the widening international presence of interdisciplinarity, its increased support in funding agencies and science-policy bodies, and the formation of several new international associations associated with interdisciplinarity.
This is a new and thoroughly revised edition of one of the first books to be published on interdisciplinarity, which has become a classic and unrivalled compendium.
