The Middle Range Series

Edited by Peter S. Bearman and Shamus R. Khan

The Middle Range, coined and represented by Columbia sociologist Robert Merton, is a style of work that treats theory and observation as a single endeavor. This approach has yielded the most significant advances in the social sciences over the last half century; it is a defining feature of Columbia’s department. This book series seeks to capitalize on the impact of approaches of the middle range and to solidify the association between Columbia University and its Press.
