Special Series


The American Sociological Association’s Rose Series in Sociology publishes highly visible, accessible books that integrate specific substantive areas in sociology. The books are designed to offer synthetic analyses of these fields, challenge prevailing paradigms, and/or offer fresh views of enduring controversies. The authors are typically senior scholars who work with or review the best available evidence, and utilize this evidential foundation to develop and defend their analysis. In most cases the arguments are extended to address contemporary public issues, and therefore reflect on or contribute to public policy. Because of their broad scope and policy relevance, the volumes published in the Rose Series are disseminated in areas beyond their focus to the broader professional and intellectual communities. This series was known as both the ASA Rose Monograph Series and the ASA Rose Series in Sociology.

The titles in this series are designated by their series logo.
