Turner, Ralph H.
American Behavioral Scientist, v33 n6 p662-84 Jul-Aug 1990
Reviews the trends in sociology since the 1930s. Identifies the still unresolved problems in the field including (1) redundancy resulting from difficulty in retrieving results of prior relevant research and lack of communication; (2) undue focus on trivial issues; (3) decline in microsociology; and (4) lack of a unifying theoretical paradigm.
