Summary
This collection of recent essays by the influential sociologist Herbert J. Gans brings together the many themes of Gans' wide-ranging career to make the case for a policy-oriented vision for sociology. Sociology and social policy presents a range of studies from across Gans' areas of interest - the city, poverty, ethnicity, employment and political economy, and the relationship between race and class - that together make a powerful call to action.--
