Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Crisis, Politics and Critical Sociology contains the table of contents and the note on contributors. The book attempts to answer the question: What is critical sociology? and what is critical sociology today? While many of the chapters began as presentations at a special Critical Sociology conference, the book is more than simply a collection of conference proceedings. In fact, as the sociologists, philosophers, and activists gathered in Boston for that meeting, it was already clear that the United States, and indeed the world, was heading into a period of profound economic uncertainty. After a journey through abstraction, the book concludes with a return to the concrete use of political economy in the international context.

Keywords: crisis; critical sociology; political economy
