Contemporary Sociology publishes reviews and critical discussions of recent works in sociology and related disciplines that merit the attention of sociologists. Since not all sociological publications can be reviewed, a selection is made to reflect important trends and issues in the field.

The American Sociological Association (ASA), founded in 1905, is a non-profit membership association dedicated to advancing sociology as a scientific discipline and profession serving the public good. With nearly 15,000 members, ASA encompasses sociologists who are faculty members at colleges and universities, researchers, practitioners, and students. About 20 percent of the members work in government, business, or non-profit organizations. ASA hosts an annual meeting with more than 6,000 participants and publishes 10 professional journals and magazines.

As the national organization for sociologists, ASA, through its Executive Office, is well positioned to provide a unique set of services to its members and to promote the vitality, visibility, and diversity of the discipline. Working at the national and international levels, ASA aims to articulate policy and implement programs likely to have the broadest possible impact for sociology now and in the future.

  • Concerning book reviews and comments, write Michael Sauder, Department of Sociology, 140 Seashore Hall West, Iowa City, IA 52242; E-mail: CS does not accept unsolicited reviews, nor self-nominations for reviewing a specific book. We do, however, welcome vitae of prospective reviewers. Also, CS will not process review-copies of books sent by any person or organization other than the original publisher. Authors wanting to assure consideration of their book by CS should advise their publisher to send a review copy directly to the journal’s editorial office. The invitation to review a book assumes that the prospective reviewer has not reviewed that book for another scholarly journal. Comments on reviews must be fewer than 300 words and typed double-spaced. Submission of a comment does not guarantee publication. CS reserves the right to reject any comment that does not engage a substantive issue in a review or is otherwise unsuitable. Authors of reviews are invited to reply.
