Sociological Self-Images: A Collective Portrait is a collection of papers on the self-images of different sociologists regarding their work, their profession, and their contributions to the social sciences. The book is comprised of 14 papers contributed by different experts in sociology, each of whom seeks to answer the following questions:

  1. What do you consider the most unique characteristics of your way of defining sociology?
  2. What is your view of the current relationship between sociological theory and social application?
  3. Which sociologists influenced you or do you most respect? Are they the same now as in your formative years?
  4. Which of your writings do you like best and why?
  5. What impact would you say your sociological efforts have had on reshaping the field? The book is an excellent resource for those who study sociology and wish to know and be inspired by the views, opinions, and works of other sociologists.
