Editor, Professor Chris Shilling, University of Kent, Canterbury, UK.
The key international journal The Sociological Review is home to a prestigious Monograph Series that publishes collections of outstanding and original scholarly articles on issues of general sociological interest.*
Dedicated to showcasing the very best and most innovative sociologically informed work, and to promoting emerging as well as established academics, the series has for over fifty years produced intellectually stimulating, coherent volumes of the highest quality. The books are available to buy separately, but are also included as part of The Sociological Review journal subscription price.
