Sociology has split into two groups, an elite core of departments and a considerably larger “mass” of departments, consisting of the sociology “teaching schools” in the lower tier of the ranking system. Relatively little has been written about these lower-ranked teaching institutions. Accordingly, this book is a snapshot and analysis of the field of sociology “from below,” or “from the ground up,” and shows how professional sociology is accomplished at some of the teaching institutions.
