It features eighteen essays by well-known scholars in and outside the UnitedStates – including Nancy Chodorow, George Cavalletto and Catherine Silver, Jeffrey Prager,Neil Smelser, and Gilda Zwerman – alongside junior scholars who are all working on howsociology, psychoanalysis, and the psychosocial interrelate. The articles consider the historyof the relationship, ongoing debates and the need for psychosocial analyses when studyingracism, gender, immigration, class and the housing crisis, trauma and social movements(among other applied topics).

This book makes a lively case for the significance of tapping intointerdisciplinary approaches, including the psychosocial, if sociology is to offer cutting-edgeresearch on a range of contemporary social issues requiring multi-dimensional insights.
