Overview

In a world of new movements and deepening economic inequality following the Great Recession, this new edition is vital. It features dozens of new examples from the latest research, with an emphasis on the next generation of liberation sociologists. Newly featured liberation social scientists demonstrate innovative ways to practice emancipatory sociology. Decolonization paradigms in criminology, critical speciesism, and studies of environmental racism and environmental privilege are new to this edition. There is an expanded focus on participatory action research, and increased coverage of international liberation social scientists. The 3rd edition offers updates on liberation social scientists featured in earlier editions, emphasizing their more recent work while expanding on the idea that sociology does not stand alone. Work by psychologists, anthropologists, theologians, historians, and others who have developed a liberation orientation for their disciplines is updated and expanded.
