The Women Founders: Sociology and Social Theory 1830–1930, A Text/Reader
Waveland Press, Dec 31, 2006 - Social Science - 302 pages
An essential volume for anyone interested in the history of sociology, the development of sociological theory, or the history of women in the profession, this well-researched, compellingly argued book makes the case for the active and significant presence of women in the creation of sociology and social theory in its founding and classic periods. Further, Lengermann and Niebrugge explain how the women came to be erased from the history of sociology and identify the political and intellectual currents that now make their recovery both possible and important.
