American Sociological Association

The cancellation of the American Sociological Association annual conference means we will not be able to greet our authors, readers, and educators in person. We have highlighted new and forthcoming titles that we had hoped to share with you in the exhibit hall. Noteworthy titles are highlighted below and you can flip through a complete catalog of sociology titles that also appears on this page.

Elizabeth Ault is holding Editor Office Hours on August 10th and 11th. Sign up here to reserve time for a conversation.
