This distinguished reference work is much more than a lexicon or ordinary dictionary. Each essay, complete with bibliographical references, presents a selective and critical discussion of some issue fundamental to sociology. Synthesizing American, British, French, and German, taken together these contributions provide a coherent and sophisticated critique of the sociological tradition.
