Gunnar Boalt, Professor of Sociology and Dean of the Faculty of Social Science at the University of Stockholm, here uses the role theory to demonstrate that research itself represents something akin to a social system in which scholars play various roles that lend themselves to quantitative and comparative study. His is, thus, a significant contribution to an understanding of the interactions of the many roles, personal and professional, that mark the vicissitudes in the life and work of a social scientist. In a long introduction, Alvin W. Gouldner, Max Weber Research Professor of Social Theory at Washington University, St. Louis, characterizes this new field of inquiry as the “sociology of sociology” and draws implications for further study.
