Adventures of an Accidental Sociologist

By: Peter Berger

A witty and intelligent memoir from one of the most influential and important social thinkers of the 20th century. Since the 1960s, Peter L. Berger, arguably one of the best known living sociologists, has been writing on many aspects of the contemporary social scene, and several of his published works are considered classics. So it may be hard to believe Berger’s description of himself as an ‘accidental sociologist.’ But it does, in fact, accurately describe how he stumbled into sociology. Written with humour and insight, Berger’s memoir conveys the excitement that a study of social life can bring and examines the main intellectual questions that have motivated his work.
