Three subfields in the study of knowledge have evolved relatively independently of each other: knowledge creation, knowledge diffusion, and knowledge utilization. Articles examining the development of these subfields, first published in the journal Knowledge, have been revised and are presented in this volume. In addition, there is a review article on linkages between these areas; bibliographies are also provided.

'...This book should serve as a useful overview and introduction to the relationships between technical knowledge and its use in policy making...the book is an excellent starting point to gain access to interdisciplinary thought on these issues.' -- Journal of the American Planning Association, Summer 1982
