This book is a most welcome addition to the growing literature on sociological practice. There isa wealthofwisdomandexperience reflected in thesechaptersas well as a wide variety ofexamples of sociology in action. Clinical sociology, in its broadest sense, is the application of a sociological perspectivetofacilitatechange. Itspractitionersareprimarilychangeagentsrather than scholars or researchers, and work with a client, be that an individual, family, group, organization, or community. The reappearance and growthofclinical sociology during the past decade is therealizationofavisionofmine,borninthe 1960sand 1970soutofmyangerand frustration-first as a graduate studentand then as a professor-thatsociologists, unlike their psychological brethren, did not practice what they preached. Persons trainedinotherdisciplineswere practicingclinicalsociology,and those fewsociolo- gists who did kept it a secret.

Isawsociologygivingup by default a role in change efforts that necessitate the consideration of social systems.Socialworkers, psychologists,politicalscientists,gerontologists,criminolo- gists, marriage and family counselors, to name a few, have eagerly gone where we had failed to tread.

Thus we are latecomers in a crowded field.
