The first of the 19 articles composing this 32nd annual volume is a survey of 20th-century American sociology by one contributor who draws greatly on his own professional life to offer insights on decades of progress and trends in the field. Topics covered in the remaining contributions include: the current most common sociological theories of human emotions; the rise of religious fundamentalism; the social bases of political divisions in post-communist Eastern Europe; the science of human rights, war crimes, and humanitarian emergencies; and the globalization of law. Each article includes an abstract.
