The American Sociologist publishes papers, comments, and other writings on topics of professional and disciplinary concern to sociologists. The contents examine intellectual, practical, and ethical issues affecting the work, careers, and perspectives of sociologists. In addition, the journal encourages research and reporting on ways in which sociological knowledge and skill relate to issues of broad public concern, past, present, and future.
