The Book Review section of Social Forces aims to provide fresh, useful information on books of significant interest to sociologists and other social scientists. Some principles that inform this goal include:. We're always looking for qualified reviewers. We do not consider unsolicited reviews.
- Blood Risk (Tucker Series, Book 1).
- Modelling Non-Stationary Time Series: A Multivariate Approach?
- Self-determinable Development of Small Islands;
- RELATED ARTICLES.
- Social Work and Human Development (Transforming Social Work Practice Series).
The necessary condition is that we receive the book itself. We do not commit to reviewing any book without first having it in the office. Still, we discard a majority of all books we receive.
We look for qualified experts in a related field to offer insight into the book's strengths and weaknesses. We often seek reviewers whose work is tangential to the book's theme, in order to generate reviews that are of interest to the widest possible social scientific audience. Books by sociologists may sometimes be reviewed by non-sociologists; books by non-sociologists should generally be reviewed by sociologists.
Reviews are published online in the order in which they complete the production process. This takes approximately 6 to 8 weeks from arrival of the review in production. The typical book review is approximately words and offers a serious evaluation of the book's strengths and weaknesses. We prefer pithy, original reviews that raise interesting questions, offer serious praise and critiques, and demonstrate the book's utility or lack thereof for other social scientists.
