Sociologies in Dialogue brings together expert contributions from international scholars, who reflect on the importance of collaboration between diverse sociological perspectives to enhance our understanding of the role of sociology as an academic discipline, and as a vehicle for social change.
By exploring the distinctive practices and research of a range of sociologists, the book shows how an open dialogue between sociologists is critical to addressing major sociological issues across the globe such as inequality and ethnocentrism, and challenging the hierarchies of knowledge production and circulation. Contributors also discuss novel strands in theory and methodology such as multicultural sociology, cosmopolitanism, and multiple modernities.
An important contribution for researchers and students interested in global sociology, sociological theories and methodologies.

Sociologies in Dialogue brings together an engaging conversation from sociologists from 20 countries, whose joint mission is to explore the contemporary relevance of sociology in their national contexts and to share their experiences across the borders. Classical sociology came on stage when the Western societies underwent the convulsions brought about by industrial revolution and democratic revolution, while the majority of African, Asian, and Latin American peoples were ruled by colonial powers. Born in 1948, International Sociological Association (ISA) aims at spreading sociological research globally. This ISA-sponsored volume is a vivid testimony of the global flourishing of sociology as an intellectual project to make sense of the ongoing social changes brought about by multiple challenges of neoliberalism, populism, and geopolitical conflicts. This book also documents the worldwide intervention of nationally-based sociologists into the burning issues of their societies, be it reconciliation with Indigenous people in Canada, anti-immigration sentiment in Poland, the humanitarian crisis of Syrian diaspora, and the external threat to Taiwan's democracy. Sociologies in Dialogue is a rich source showcasing how locally-embedded sociologists continue to carry on the global conversation about the mission of sociology on a worldwide scale. -- Ming-sho Ho
