The innovative Princeton Studies in Cultural Sociology series aims to present a select number of works by the most prominent and the most promising scholars in cultural sociology. These books offer theoretically and empirically sophisticated accounts of how culture works in diverse social and institutional settings, touching on subjects as varied as popular culture, avant-gardes, social movements, gender, race, religion, citizenship, identity, belonging, and equality. The series at all times highlights the crucial role that cultural phenomena play in the lives of individuals and the development of societies.

Titles published in the series include Justin Farrell’s Billionaire Wilderness: The Ultrawealthy and the Remaking of the American West; Cynthia Miller-Idriss’s The Extreme Gone Mainstream: Commercialization and Far Right Youth Culture in Germany; Amin Ghaziani’s There Goes the Gayborhood?; Phillipa Chong’s Inside the Critic’s Circle: Book Reviewing in Uncertain Times and, most recently, Kusha Sefat’s The Revolution of Things: The Islamism and Post-Isamism of Objects in Iran.

As we welcome the new editors, we extend our deepest gratitude to outgoing editor, and longtime PUP author, Robert Wuthnow for his amiable and expert contributions to the series.
