About the Author:

Samuel R. Brown is a PhD candidate in sociology at the University of Pennsylvania.

Review:

"This combination bibliography-thesaurus . . . is distinguished by its 'thesaurus-index,' a hierarchical listing of terms that also provides entry numbers for the citations in the first part of the book. These thesaurus descriptors are 'natural language terms' and according to the author provide a means 'with which one can efficiently locate specific information.' The work covers a wide range of topics--e.g., Danish-Americans, grant recipients, and heroin. The introduction explains how to use the book and provides examples from the thesaurus. In addition to the theasaurus-index/subtitle and author indexes are provided. The 578 titles listed were derived from well-known sources . . . and based on their availability as established through OCLC. The author intended this work for an audience of librarians, faculty, researchers, and students in addition to those involved in public policy matters, members of applied research centers and those in the general public interested in current issues. Highly recommended for academic and general collections." - Choice

"Sociology has long needed a bibliographic guide to its reference literature. . . . Through its tripartite structure, [Finding the Source in Sociology and Anthropology] serves various audiences and purposes. Its first section, an annotated bibliography of basic reference sources in the social sciences organized by type of source, will make this attractive to faculty and graduate students in sociology who, unlike reference librarians do not have ready access to sources. . . . The second section describes seventy additional sources specific to the associated disciplines of education, economics, psychology, social work, anthropology, and history. Within each of these disciplines, reference works are listed by genre. Like the first section, this offers faculty and graduate students convenience. It is the third section that will appeal to reference librarians as well as to these other audiences. By reference genre it describes printed reference tooks and databases useful in sociology research.... This fills a longstanding gap in academic and large public libraries' reference collections." - Wilson Library Bulletin
