Though the word sociology was coined in Europe, the field of sociology grew most dramatically in America. Despite that disproportionate influence, American sociology has never been the subject of an extended historical examination. To remedy that situation and to celebrate the centennial of the American Sociological Association Craig Calhoun assembled a team of leading sociologists to produce "Sociology in ""America"." "Rather than a story of great sociologists or departments, "Sociology in America" is a true history of an often disparate field and a deeply considered look at the ways sociology developed intellectually and institutionally. It explores the growth of American sociology as it addressed changes and challenges throughout the twentieth century, covering topics ranging from the discipline s intellectual roots to understandings (and misunderstandings) of race and gender to the impact of the Depression and the 1960s. "Sociology in America" will stand as the definitive treatment of the contribution of twentieth-century American sociology and will be required reading for all sociologists.
