2020-06-08 Critical Sociology is an international peer reviewed journal that publishes the highest quality original research. The journal seeks to engage and promote critical thinking by publishing articles from all perspectives broadly defined as falling within the boundaries of critical or radical social science. Originally appearing as The Insurgent Sociologist, it grew out of the tumultuous times of the late 1960s and was a by-product of the "Sociology Liberation Movement" which erupted at the 1969 meetings of the American Sociological Association. At first publishing work mainly within the broadest boundaries of the Marxist tradition, over the past decade the journal has been home to articles informed by post-modern, feminist, cultural and other perspectives that critically evaluate the workings of the capitalist system and its impact on the world. The journal is a platform for scholars whose work explores the relationship between race, gender and class in their quest for a deeper understanding of society writ large. It will continue in this fashion in order to preserve its position as one of a select few "alternative" journals having widespread recognition and respect within the world of social science scholarship.

"At a time when many are buried in narrow crevices of knowledge, Critical Sociology has the boldness and courage to take on the ‘big questions’. For those who would break out of the straitjacket of the methodological imperative Critical Sociology is a necessary and vital forum for alternative ideas." Stanley Aronowitz, Distinguished Professor of Sociology, Graduate Center, City University of New York, USA

"Critical Sociology provides in-depth symposia and challenging articles on current issues in mainstream and critical sociological inquiry." Robert Perrucci, Past President of SSSP and Professor of Sociology, Purdue University, USA

"Critical Sociology offers a much-needed forum for research on alternatives to our capitalist/racist system that isn't cautiously concerned with pleasing the establishment. Thank goodness it exists!" Edna Bonacich, Chair of the Political Economy of the World System section of ASA, and Professor of Sociology, University of California, Riverside, USA

"Without critique sociology is lost, and Critical Sociology delivers this in spades - it is a pillar of our discipline." Michael Burawoy, Past President of ASA, and Professor of Sociology, University of California, Berkeley, USA

"Publishing insightful and careful work from left perspectives, including those of feminists, Critical Sociologyis an essential scholarly resource for sociologists and others committed to knowledge that helps to confront pervasive societal problems." Joan Acker, recipient of the ASA Career of Distinguished Scholarship Award and the ASA Jessie Bernard Award, and Professor of Sociology, University of Oregon, USA

"Critical Sociology continues in its great tradition of bringing new ideas to the forefront and keeping the mainstream on its toes." G. William Domhoff, Research Professor in Sociology, University of California, Santa Cruz, USA

Critical Sociology is an international peer-reviewed journal that publishes the highest quality original research. For over three decades Critical Sociology has been a leading voice of sociological analysis from a political economy perspective. This journal is a must for sociologists and anyone else seeking to understand the most pressing issues of the day as they are informed by race, class and gender.

Originally published as the Insurgent Sociologist, formed as a result of the social action of the 1960s "Sociology Liberation Movement" which erupted at the 1969 meetings of the American Sociological Association, Critical Sociology has been committed to publishing scholarship from a Marxist, post-Marxist, Feminist, and other critical perspectives. Its current editorial mission is to encourage scholarship that seeks to understand contemporary Capitalist society.

Today the journal remains one of the few sources of critical research on a wide range of topics within sociology, and increasingly from an international perspective. Recent articles on globalization, economic development, religion, the environment, labor movements, social policy, and the sociology of work reflect the journal's commitment to a broad range of topics, all linked by common goals of critically examining how society functions and of exploring the potential for progressive social change.

In addition, special issues and thematic symposia enable Critical Sociology to engage in a discussion about contemporary issues through groundbreaking and important new scholarship. Recent examples include:
