Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0813379261, Paperback)Tracing the nine formal social science disciplines - political science, sociology, economics, history, anthropology, philosophy, geography, psychology, and linguistics - through their cycles of growth, specialization, fragmentation and hybridization, Dogan and Pahre reject the notion of catch-all "interdisciplinary" research. They set out to demonstrate that in moving from the centre to the periphery of a discipline, crossing its borders and penetrating the field of another, a scholar has a better chance to innovate.
