Morality and Society Series

Alan Wolfe, General Editor
Douglas Mitchell, Acquiring Editor
Each of the social sciences engages in questions that touch upon people's obligations to one another. One of them, sociology, because of its concern for real people in real situations, offers a particularly appropriate way to discuss issues of morality and ethics. The purpose of this series is to demonstrate the truth of this proposition by publishing books dealing with moral issues from a sociological perspective. The Morality and Society series seeks to discover, develop, and publish works in four broad categories: ethnographies of moral decision-making, theoretical but empirically grounded treatments of moral obligation, studies of specific moral and ethical dilemmas, and comparative studies of moral issues that arise in different cultural and historical settings.
