The Americanization of Social Science Intellectuals and Public Responsibility in the Postwar United States

Synopsis

The Americanization of Social Science Intellectuals and Public Responsibility in the Postwar United States by David Haney

A controversial explanation for sociology

Reviews

The Americanization of Social Science is written so beautifully, so engagingly, and Haney is so widely read in the sociology and context of the 1950s, that this is both a wonderful social history of the discipline and, at the same time, an astute sociological analysis of the field's consolidation....This [book] is sure to further stimulate the debate about public sociology. - Michael Burawoy, Department of Sociology, University of California, Berkeley
