Review quote

"The Gallihers document the strains between 'Christian' and 'value-free' sociology and the constraints upon Betty and other women in a male-dominated academic world. These chapters offer a clear and systematic analysis of the historical and biographical sources of the Lees' intellectual opposition to, and life-long struggle against, the 'professionalization' of sociology. The book provides a rich and appealing biographical portrait of Betty and Al Lees' marital and professional partnership. It offers a significant contribution to the history of sociology." -- James D. Orcutt, Florida State University
