First published in 1998, RSI and the Experts explores the interactions and negotiations that take place between experts and lay groups in the evolution of medical scientific knowledge, concentrating on Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI).

The book poses questions as to how medical knowledge is developed and what power structures are involved, drawing on evidence collected from a variety of stakeholders, including people with RSI, doctors, and ergonomists. It informs contemporary debates in the sociology of scientific knowledge and explores the practical implications of lay intervention, bridging sociological theory, medical science policy and activist concerns.
