About the Author

Edited by John Scott CBE, formerly Professor of Sociology and Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research, Plymouth University, UK and Ann Nilsen, Professor of Sociology, University of Bergen, Norway


'What this collection offers more than anything is the opportunity to adopt Mills' thought as a spur to action - as a way of being a sociologist... particularly in environments where sociology is increasingly under threat.' -- LSE Review of Books
