In this history of the Chicago School of Sociology, Andrew Abbott investigates central topics in the emergence of modern scholarship, paying special attention to "schools of science" and how such schools reproduce themselves over time. What are the preconditions from which schools arise? Do they exist as rigid rules or as flexible structures? How do they emerge from the day-to-day activities of academic life such as editing journals and writing papers? Abbott analyzes the shifts in social scientific inquiry and discloses the intellectual rivalry and faculty politics that characterized different stages of the Chicago School. Along the way, he traces the rich history of the discipline's main journal, the "American Journal of Sociology". Embedded in this analysis of the school and its practices is a broader theoretical argument, which Abbott uses to redefine social objects as a sequence of interconnected events rather than as fixed entities. Abbott's theories grow directly out of the Chicago School's insistence that social life be located in time and place, a tradition that has been at the heart of the school since its founding 100 years ago.

Although Freud's impact on social science - and indeed 20th century social thought - has been extraordinary, his impact on American sociology has been left relatively unexplored. This ground-breaking book aims to fill this knowledge gap. By examining the work of pioneers such as G. H. Mead, Cooley, Parsons and Goffman, as well as a range of key contemporary thinkers, it provides an accurate history of the role Freud and psychoanalysis played in the development of American social theory. Despite the often reluctant, and frequently resistant, nature of this encounter, the book also draws attention to the abiding potential of fusing psychoanalytic and sociological thinking. Freud and American Sociology represents an original and compelling contribution to scholarly debate. At the same time, the clarity with which Manning develops his comprehensive account means that the book is also highly suitable for adoption on a range of upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses, including sociology, social theory, social psychology, and related disciiplines.

In this original book, David Wagner addresses one of the fundamental debates in sociological theory. Are sociological theories cumulative (can new theories be built upon old theories already in existence) or non-cumulative (each theory is completely dependent upon the context and values in existence at the time of its generation). Wagner argues in favour of the former, and says that there are a considerable number of assumptions upon which sociologists can build when developing their own theories. The book combines a review of basic theory construction with philosophical essays on sociological inquiry, and includes Wagner's own multidimensional concept of theory development. It will appeal to those interested in sociology, philosophy, sociological theory, and social psychology, and would be suitable as a graduate text book. 'This is a timely book that is relevant for all of us who are concerned about the problem of the cumulativeness of sociological knowledge.' -- Contemporary Sociology, Vol 15 No 1, January 1986 '...Wagner has written a book...with some new and interesting ideas...The book has some good ideas and suggests an important approach that might reopen the debat about theory construction. ..' -- American Journal of Sociology, no 6, 1987.

This volume provides an overview of mental health research conducted by sociologists. It discusses dominant themes such as stress, the community and mental life, family structure, social relations and recovery. The unique contribution of sociology to the study of mental health has a long history stretching from the very foundations of modern sociology. Yet it was only twenty years ago that the Section on Sociology of Mental Health of the American Sociological Association was formed largely in response to a burgeoning rise in the sum and significance of research in the field. Today the section is a large and vibrant one with its own journal, Society and Mental Health. This book explores several of the themes that have occurred during that period, providing both perspectives of the past and prospects for the future. The volume is timely, following closely the 20th anniversary of the section's formation. Its coverage of key issues and its advancement of the scholarly debates on these issues will prove valuable to students and senior scholars alike.
