From award-winning scholarly monographs to market-leading textbooks and state-of-the-art reference works, at Palgrave Macmillan we pride ourselves on our high quality publishing across Sociology. We publish for a global audience of scholars, researchers and students, with a list that features some of the world's leading social scientists.

Palgrave Pivot

Palgrave Macmillan has launched an innovative new format for scholarly research, Palgrave Pivot. Representing a radical change in scholarly publishing, Palgrave Pivot offers authors the flexibility of publishing their research at lengths between the journal article and the conventional monograph, a commitment to publish within 12 weeks, peer-review and wide dissemination.

Just published in Sociology:
The Trend Towards the European Deregulation of Professions and its Impact on Portugal Under Crisis
Citizen-Consumers and Evolution
Gender Politics and the Olympic Industry
Preparing for Life in Humanity 2.0
Sporting Times

We are now accepting proposals for Palgrave Pivot, visit the Palgrave Pivot website for more information.


Dr Jane Monckton-Smith’s book, Murder, Gender and the Media: Narratives of Dangerous Love, has won the Feminist and Women's Studies Association (FWSA) book prize for 2013. One of the judges commented: 'It is clear and highly engaging from the start, well written and perfectly structured, providing convincing insights into media representations and the inside workings of the police. This brilliantly written, thought provoking book engages readers throughout, and will make useful contributions to wider feminist theory and violence against women policies.' The award has been announced on the FWSA blog.
