Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Abrams is genial and persuasive in arguing that history must be sociological, and sociology historical, if they are to pursue their respective missions well. . . . It is an important addition to the discourse across these tribal boundaries."—American Historical Review

"Very attractively written and unfailingly interesting, this is an exceptionally timely and topical volume."—Steven Lukes, Balliol College, Oxford

"Philip Abrams has left behind a thoughtful, lucid, well-informed study of the ways of writing about history sociologically."—Charles Tilly, Director, Center for Research on Social Organization, University of Michigan
