'The companion edited volumes Conceptualizing Relational Sociology and Applying Relational Sociology offer nothing less than a platform to review and renegotiate some of the key aspects and key contributions for the social sciences. The editors' strategy for achieving this is remarkable they seek to introduce relational sociology based on what they hold as evidence of this way of thinking of society in both seminal and more contemporary thought, and do so by bringing together a strong selection of contributions from established and up-and-coming authors. One of the major strengths of this book is that relational sociology is introduced not as a broad declaration of war to any existing and established current, but rather as a 'federative' epistemological discussion that is introduced by means of a demonstration of its presence, and by illuminating us on its principles as they are developed already in some of the seminal contributions to the field. It is my opinion that this book makes a great contribution to the epistemology of sociology and to the social sciences as a whole.' - Jonathan Paquette, Associate Professor, School of Political Studies, University of Ottawa, Canada
