Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mabel Agnes Elliott: Pioneering Feminist, Pacifist Sociologist provides a history of the life and career of the late Mabel Agnes Elliott (1898-1990), a pioneering female sociologist largely forgotten despite her achievements and contributions. A native of Iowa, Elliott earned three degrees in sociology from Northwestern University. In addition to her career as a sociologist, she was a feminist and a pacifist whose occasional criticism of criminal policies in the United States led to the creation of her own FBI file. Despite being largely disregarded by her male colleagues, Elliott wrote a wildly successful textbook-Social Disorganization-that published four editions over thirty years. After starting her career at the University of Kansas and working there for twenty years, she moved to Chatham College in Pennsylvania in 1949, where she was appreciated for her singular abilities. Among her many achievements, she was the first woman to be elected president of the Society for the Study of Social Problems in 1957. Book jacket.
