Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book American Sociology of Religion: Histories contains a table of contents and a preface. The book discusses the history of sociology of religion in America among its various professional constituencies and sub fields. It also focuses on three areas of interest within the study of American Catholicism: the development of the sociological investigation of American Catholicism in the period of time that it took form, from the 1930s to the early 1960s; the major areas that have occupied the attention of sociologists of American Catholicism since changes began to emerge after and seemingly from the Second Vatican Council; and the presentation of important promising avenues for future research.

Keywords: American Catholicism; Second Vatican Council
