Looking back over the last 60 years of sociology in the UK, this book addresses the question of progress in the discipline. Campbell's critical and autobiographical reflections offer fresh insights into the history of sociology, and engages with the notion of academic reputation, how it is measured, and what it can tell us about scholarly progress.
Has Sociology Progressed? will be of special interest to all sociologists and would-be sociologists interested in the past, present and future of their discipline, as well as scholars contemplating academic progress and motivation in general.
Colin Campbell is Emeritus Professor of Sociology at the University of York, UK. His previous books include The Romantic Ethic and the Spirit of Modern Consumerism (2018), The Easternization of The West (2007), and The Myth of Social Action (1996).
