    Review quote
    "Sociology on Culture negotiates an enormously scholarly terrain, with brevity, in ways that will prove consistently interesting to sociologists--so much so that it merits wide reading quite independent of use in teaching...Few books meant as texts have been written as finely and with as much scope and imagination as this one...Sociology on Culture is as stimulating a text as you could wish with to engage students. The books sets a very high standard, and will prove absorbing and instructive to anyone interested in culture." - Contemporary Sociology
