CRITICAL SOCIOLOGY REVIEW ESSAYS

Critical Sociology‘s book review section will now begin focusing on publishing more comprehensive review essays. Such essays of approximately 5,000 words in length generally examine three to four books of a similar topic through a scholarly lens. For example, we currently have four titles that examine the economic crisis from a critical/left perspective. They are:

1. McNally, David. Global Slump: The Economics and Politics of Crisis and Resistance
2. Lilley, Sasha. Capital and its Discontents: Conversations with Radical Thinkers in a Time of Tumult
3. Albo, Greg, Sam Gindin, and Leo Panitch. In and Out of Crisis: The Global Financial Meltdown and Left Alternatives
4. Calhoun, Craig and Georgi Derluguian. Business as Usual: The Roots of the Global Financial Meltdown

Alternatively, a review essay may draw on a single book title and discuss its relevance along a broad  framework such as contemporary scholarship, or in light of recent e vents, or its utility in an activist setting, etc.

In addition, Critical Sociology welcomes review essays concerned with contemporary media and cultural productions, including but not limited to fiction, cinema, and independent music. These review essays should meet the same criteria set out for book review essays, discussed above.

If you are interested in writing a book review essay for the journal or proposing a potential review essay of your own, please contact the book review editor, George Sanders, at the following e-mail: critsoc.reviews@gmail.com

If you are interested in writing a culture review essay (concerned with fiction, cinema, music, photography and the graphic arts, etc.) for the journal or proposing a potential review essay of your own, please contact the media and culture editor, Graham Cassano, at the following e-mail: critsoc.mediaculture@gmail.com
