9780742566460: Handbook of Public Sociology

Public sociology—an approach to sociology that aims to communicate with and actively engage wider audiences—has been one of the most widely discussed topics in the discipline in recent years. The Handbook of Public Sociology presents a comprehensive look at every facet of public sociology in theory and practice. It pays particular attention to how public sociology can complement more traditional types of sociological practice to advance both the analytical power of the discipline and its ability to benefit society. The volume features contributions from a stellar list of authors, including several past presidents of the American Sociological Association such as Michael Burawoy, a leading proponent of public sociology.

The first two sections of the Handbook of Public Sociology look at public sociology in relation to the other three types of practice—professional, policy, and critical—with an emphasis on integrating the four types into a holistic model of theory and practice. Subsequent sections focus on issues like teaching public sociology at various levels, case studies in the application of public sociology, and the role of public sociology in special fields in the discipline. The concluding chapter by Michael Burawoy, a past president of the American Sociological Association and a leading proponent of public sociology, addresses current debates surrounding public sociology and presents a constructive vision for the future that embraces and improves upon all four types of sociology.

The Handbook of Public Sociology with its examination not only of public sociology but also of how it can enhance and complement other types of practice, transcends differences in the field and will appeal to a wide range of academics, students, and practitioners.

About the Author:

Vincent Jeffries is professor of sociology at California State University, Northridge.

Review:

The publication of The Handbook of Public Sociology is timely and important. While it reveals the tensions and disputes about public sociology within the discipline of sociology, it also makes clear its potential to educate the public on many crucial social problems and issues confronting our society. This volume is a must-read for those who believe that sociology’s findings, theories and ideas should be more widely disseminated. (William Julius Wilson, Lewis P. and Linda L. Geyser University Professor, Harvard University)

This is a useful volume. . . . Recommended. (CHOICE, May 2010)
