Sari Hanafi and Chin-Chun Yi (eds), Sociologies in Dialogue, SAGE, 2020; 392 pp.: ISBN 1529711460 - Review
The book “Sociologies in Dialogue” is a unique project that takes the international discussion on sociology and its role in socio-economic changes at the local and global scale to a fundamentally new level. Discussions about "global sociology" have been going on for a long time. However, it is a first time when an integrated intellectual product appears that combines the efforts of sociologists from 20 countries.
The main problem in the discussion on “global sociology” remains its fragmentary character. Different visions of sociology, created in various local and national contexts, have not been comprehended on a single conceptual framework. The task is not only to “pay attention” to local specifics, but also to systematically and consistently overview particular cases, locating them on a single conceptual space.
