Public sociology: research, action, and change.
This book explores the many ways in which sociology brings about social change, written by authors who work on the forefront of the public sociology movement. The book begins with four chapters on the following topics: sociological imagination and engaged scholarship, sharing knowledge through university-community collaboration, starting and sustaining projects, and a career guide for public sociologists. The book continues with eight chapters of case studies, and concludes making the case for a new, engaged 21st century scholarship.
