      a text-book of sociology. (new york, london: macmillan, ). [i] a text-book of sociology [ii] [iii] a text-book of sociology by james quayle dealey, ph.d. professor of social and political science in brown university and lester frank ward, ll.d. of the smithsonian institution at washington, d.c. new york. A profession is an occupation founded upon specialized educational training, the purpose of which is to supply disinterested objective counsel and service to others, for a direct and definite compensation, wholly apart from expectation of other business gain. The term is a truncation of the term "liberal profession", which is, in turn, an Anglicization of the French term "profession libérale".

      The first book with the term sociology in its title was written in the midth century by the English philosopher Herbert Spencer. In the United States, the first Sociology course was taught at the University of Kansas, Lawrence in under the title Elements of Sociology (the oldest continuing sociology course in America).   When I was still teaching sociology, I was often bemused when some students complained that they had too much reading to do ahead of class. We typically set two journal articles or book chapters as mandatory reading each week (and of course there were additional suggested texts).

      This book is a classic in Medical Sociology, and so I read it for my PhD qualifying exam. Freidson sets up some of the basic concepts in what a profession is, and how medicine's status as a profession has changed over time. I recommend it for anyone really interested /5. Sociology of education looks at education as evolving from and altering the social environment. From a sociological point of view, education is the organized and regulated process by which society transfers knowledge and values to groom young people for adult social roles.
