Description

Over the years a number of sociologists have been constantly overshadowed, going almost virtually unnoticed by the discipline. The purpose of this work is to resurrect those sociologists by attempting to bring them into the mainstream. Dr. Romano will enlarge upon the contributions of Jane Addams, Walter Benjamin, W.E.B. Du Bois, Harriet Martineau, Pitirim A. Sorokin, Flora Tristan, George E. Vincent, and Beatrice Webb.
