A Sociology of Firearms for the Twenty-First Century – Editor’s Introduction Now Available

Although the printed journal is not due out until February 2022, by the magic of the internet, the articles appearing in the special issue of Sociological Perspectives that I co-edited are now available online (though mostly pay-walled, sorry).

The Special Issue Editors’ Introduction that Trent Steidley and I wrote, A Sociology of Firearms for the Twenty-First Century, was published online last week.

Far from just a summary of the articles in the special issue, Trent and I tried to stand back and put those articles in a broader scholarly context that highlights why they are important to advancing a sociology of firearms for the twenty-first century.

Give it a read and let me know what you think. If you have trouble accessing the text, please let me know!
