In African American Pioneers of Sociology, Pierre Saint-Arnaud examines the lasting contributions that African americans have made to the sector of sociology. Arguing that technological know-how is something yet a impartial build, he defends the unconventional stances taken by way of early African American sociologists from accusations of highbrow disease by means of foregrounding the racist ancient context of the time those influential works have been produced.

Examining key figures comparable to W.E.B. Du Bois, Edward Franklin Frazier, Charles Spurgeon Johnson, Horace Roscoe Cayton, J.G. St. Clair Drake, and Oliver Cromwell Cox, Saint-Arnaudreveals the ways that many points of recent sociology emerged from those authors' radical perspectives on race, gender, faith, and sophistication. superbly translated from its unique French, African American Pioneers of Sociology is a beautiful exam of the impact of African American intellectuals and a vital paintings for realizing the origins of sociology as a latest discipline.
