about

A new and innovative account of British sociology's intellectual origins that uses previously unknown archival resources to show how the field's forgotten roots in a late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century debate about biology can help us understand both its subsequent development and future potential.
CHRIS RENWICK is Lecturer in Modern History at the University of York, UK
