Journeys in Sociology: From First Encounters to Fulfilling Retirements

April 27, 2017
Rosalyn Benjamin Darling and Peter J. Stein

The editors and twenty contributors to the essential anthology Journeys in Sociology use a life-course perspective to address the role of sociology in their lives. The power of their personal experiences—during the Great Depression, World War II, or the student protests and social movements in the 1960s and '70s—magnify how and why social change prompted these men and women to study sociology. Moreover, all of the contributors include a discussion of their activities in retirement.
