Sociology and Social Policy : Essays on Community, Economy, and Society Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


This collection of recent essays by the influential sociologist Herbert J.

Gans brings together the many themes of Gans's wide-ranging career to make the case for a policy-oriented vision of sociology.

Sociology and Social Policy presents a range of studies that explicate and help solve social problems by studying what people, institutions, and social structures do with, for, and against one another.

These works from across Gans's major areas of study-the city, poverty, ethnicity, employment and political economy, and the relationship between race and class-together make a powerful call to action for the field of sociology.
