About the Author:

Stephen Turner is Distinguished Professor at the University of South Florida, US. He is the co-author of the influential book The Impossible Science.

Review:

"There is much to think about in Turner's diagnosis of our time. His distanced appreciation for the field gives the book a healthy remove from the everyday trivia of status contests that afflict all disciplines, and also allows him to see the future as entirely different from sociol- ogy's past. If one is concerned with 'objective science' and creativity, things do not look good; if instead one is satisfied with a field of study which imaginatively empowers the powerless and gives hope to the downtrodden, then sociology probably has a meaningful future." - Contemporary Sociology, 2015, 44(1)

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 144 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.8in. x 0.7in.American Sociology has changed radically since 1945, when the field was dominated by young lions attempting to make sociology a science. The 1968 student revolt ended much of this, leaving sociology divided and directionless. By the 1980s, enrolments had fallen and departments were closing. But sociology revived, and at both the graduate and undergraduate level the field became dominated by women. What changed and what didnt, and why Areas of interest, methodology, and status hierarchies were all affected by the changes, but there were also continuities. Some of the continuities reached back to the nineteenth century, when sociology was closely related to reform movements. This book focuses on the consequences of the near-death experience of sociology in the 1980s, and its slow revival and transformation, as well as the challenges it faces in the new university environments. Certain to be controversial, the book looks forward to a new kind of discipline. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover.
