The theories behind contemporary sociology were imported from Europe and first taught in American colleges in the late 1880s. Rooted in the soil of late feudal society, the received theories of current academic sociology simply cannot flourish in the democratic environment of modern America. This volume represents the author's effort to rethink the way sociologists approach both their discipline and the study of society and culture in the United States. The end product of this exercise is a distinctly American sociology.
