MEDIA REVIEWS
All students of the history of sociology will appreciate this small volume...this book tells the valuable story of a man whose memories reveal the unfolding of the discipline of sociology as well as the vital role he played in it. -- Jim Short, Washington State University * Rural Sociology *
...a job well done... Young's experiences, reminiscences, and interpretations are a valuable addition to the history and sociology of intellectual life, and especially of sociology as discipline and profession. The editors have done a superb job of editing Young's oral history, and their introduction and historical notes combine to make a fascinating intellectual chronicle. -- Jim Short, Washington State University
