This book studies the circulation of social knowledge by focusing on the reception of Niklas Luhmann's systems theory in the Hispanic Americas. It presents a detailed analysis of knowledge circulation from a science and technology studies perspective and shows that theories need active involvement from scholars in the receiving field in order to travel. As Holub has argued, the success of any transplanted theory is the ability 'on the part of advocates to situate a foreign tradition in its new environment and to account for the differences that are operative in the new settings.'
