"Sociology is alive! Here is an original and scholarly volume that rails against the numbing effects of a dead or defeatist sociology. The contributors provoke and inspire ? through their engagement with the themes of art, storying, the digital and designs - by insisting upon a 'live sociology' that is inventive, artful and crafty, but always also ethical and attentive. The volume creates a vibrant sense of possibility at a time when it might be argued that sociology needs it most."
