    Wiley 2013; US$ 29.95

    Is there a future for sociology? To many, sociology seems to have lost its way.

    Springer 2013; US$ 59.99

  • Public Sociologyby Ben Agger

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2007; US$ 33.99

    Public Sociology examines the 'discourse' of mainstream journal articles in sociology in order to understand the essentially conservative nature of mainstream sociology.
