AIS reminds its members of this essential volume for anyone interested in the history of Sociology.

The analysis focuses on the lives and social theories of fifteen women who were present and active in the creation of sociology.

Lengermann and Niebrugge explain how the women came to be erased from the history of sociology and identify the intellectual currents that now make their recovery both possible and important.
