For fairly ortho vacation reading on the topic try:
Can theories be refuted? : Essays on the Duhem-Quine thesis. Edited by Sandra G. Harding 1976
Social Epistemology. By Steve Fuller 1988 [this one sort of launched the science studies movement and has a great appendix on the tensions between the authoritarian proclivities of expert knowledge and the democratic "demand" for holding big science accountable; it takes some great swipes at Popper and his ilk]
Justin probably has some good suggestions....
