Summary
"In African American Pioneers of Sociology, Pierre Saint-Arnaud examines the lasting contributions that African Americans have made to the field of sociology. Arguing that social science is anything but a neutral construct, he defends the radical stances taken by early African American sociologists from unfair criticism by considering the racist historical context of the time in which these influential works were produced." "Examining key figures such as W.E.B. Du Bois, Edward Franklin Frazier, Charles Spurgeon Johnson, Horace Roscoe Cayton, J.G. St Clair Drake, and Oliver Cromwell Cox, Saint-Arnaud reveals the ways in which these authors' radical views on race, gender, religion, and class shaped the emerging academic discipline of sociology. Faithfully and elegantly translated from the original French, African American Pioneers of Sociology is an extraordinary study of the influence of African American intellectuals and an essential work for understanding the origins and development of modern sociology."--Jacket
