History of ISA 1948-1997

By Jennifer Platt, University of Sussex, England

Published in 1998 on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the foundation of the International Sociological Association, this is a first book publication covering various aspects of ISA history. Illustrated with original photographs and congress posters it offers an attractive overview of a life of an international organization. Reading the history of the ISA may help you to reflect on the definitional evolution of what is included within the boundaries of sociology.

The archives of the International Sociological Association are deposited at the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
