Editorial Reviews

May 2010 CHOICE
This is a useful volume. . . . Recommended.
William Julius Wilson
The publication of The Handbook of Public Sociology is timely and important. While it reveals the tensions and disputes about public sociology within the discipline of sociology, it also makes clear its potential to educate the public on many crucial social problems and issues confronting our society. This volume is a must-read for those who believe that sociology’s findings, theories and ideas should be more widely disseminated.
