The work adds to efforts underway from Feagin and Piven by challenging scholars to change the way we think about inequalities among ourselves, and to consider alternative ways to do sociology beyond regurgitatively publishing articles only to achieve the expected tenure. The book pays special attention to the importance of defeating meta-narratives and points out that the academy's emphasis on statistically based research does not permit the critique of meta-narratives which drive inequality within the academy and wider society.
