Annie Marion MacLean and the Chicago Schools of Sociology, 1894-1934
Mary Jo Deegan
Pioneering sociologist Annie Marion MacLean was a graduate of and faculty member of the Department of Sociology at the University of Chicago. Affiliated with the Jane Addams Hull House throughout her career, MacLean researched women's labor and examined industrial conditions for women. This biography begins with an overview of her life and career. Later chapters present excerpts of research and writings by MacLean, grouped in sections on women and the sociology of work and occupations, women's labor unions and the feminist pragmatist welfare state, women's organizations and the sociology of social movements, and the sociology of immigration and race relations, disability, and teaching. Each of these chapters opens with an extensive introduction to the readings, placing them in historical and academic context. The book closes with a review of MacLean's legacy to sociology and society.
