The Articles in the Transforming Sociology Series began in the '60's when it was very difficult for those on the margins of American Sociology to find a voice in establishment journals.  In the midst of the Civil Rights movement, the Anti-war movement, the Feminist Movement and Black Power Activism, the ASA and most regional associations, hiding behind a mask of objectivity, impartiality and value neutrality, pushed control, consensus, and functional necessity for class and gender inequality.  Marx was not mentioned in most grad schools.  Conflict Theory and Conflict Methodology were 'unscientific.'  Otto Larsen, Executive Director of ASA ridiculed my work on Conflict Methodology in an Issue of  The American Sociologist.   Otto was a very nice guy but had no idea of what was going on in the philosophy of science and the sociology of knowledge. ..Clueless in Washington, D.C.  A few of us at Colorado State University thought we had a clue.  As it turned out, we did.

Tim Lehmann, Tom Harblin and I decided that we needed a way to get excluded, 'un-scientific' papers to sociologists...especially to graduate sociology students.  So we created the Red Feather Institute and began to publish the papers below...and to distribute them at scholarly meetings around the country for 25 to grad students.  Tim and his family moved to New York...and a couple years later, Tom and his family moved to I carried on.  Garth Massey joined me and remains a source of support.  Here are some of the articles...many have been lost in the many moves I've made these past 10 years or so...but, as we find them, we'll add them to the Archives and, as well, add new articles as they come along.
