book naming contest
For about five years now, I have been working on and off on a social theory book. The purpose is to explain to a wide audience what it is that sociologists do. A number of readers have read drafts of the book and provided valuable feedback. The book has a new editor who has very strongly suggested a new title of the book. The old title was “All of Sociology in Four E-Z Steps!!!” But what should the new title be?
Here is my first stab: Theory for the Working Sociologist – How to Understand Contemporary Sociology. Can you do better? You probably can. Use the comments section. In a week or so, I’ll put up a poll with 4 or 5 of the best responses. Then, the winner of the poll will get a prize (even if the press opts for a different title):
- $20 cash, or
- A free copy of From Black Power or Party in the Street, or
- Free Grad Skool Rulz for 10 of your friends.
All serious participants in the contest will have their names in the acknowledgements and the winner will be listed first.
