These eleven essays look at the current state of sociology in Britain from a number of intriguing perspectives. How important is it for British sociologists to be aware of the historical development of their subject in this country? How is British sociology seen by British scholars working inrelated fields, such as social history, social anthropology and demography? And how are British sociologists perceived by their colleagues working abroad, in particular in continental Europe? A concluding essay by the President of the British Sociological Association identifies the recurring themesin these reflections.
A H Halsey is at Emeritus Professor of Social and Administrative Studies, University of Oxford; Fellow of the British Academy. W G Runciman is at Senior Research Fellow, University of Cambridge; President of the British Academy.

Editorial Reviews

"[C]onsistently thoughtful and insightful. The tone is conversational and the essays combine (self-) criticism and (self-) contragulation in varying degrees."--Contemporary Sociology
