Author Biography

Charles Lemert
Charles Lemert is Andrus Professor of Sociology at Wesleyan University. Once a minister, still a student of theology, seldom a church-goer, Lemert began adult life as a political activist in the 1960s, when he read Reinhold Niebuhr for the first time. He is at work, now, on Niebuhr's America: Saving the Global Heartland from Moral Excess, as well as Thinking the Unthinkable. Lemert's Durkheim's Ghosts: Cultural Logics and Social Things will appear in 2005, as will Deadly Worlds (with Anthony Elliott).
