An intellectual history of the social sciences that offers a library of 101 books that broke new ground for the field.

What are the social sciences? What unifies them? This essay collection seeks to answer these and other important questions as it considers how the field has developed over the years, from post–World War II to the present day throughout the world. Edited by Cyril Lemieux, Laurent Berger, Marielle Macé, Gildas Salmon, and Cécile Vidal, A History of the Social Sciences in 101 Books brings together a diverse range of researchers in the social sciences to present short essays on 101 books—both renowned and lesser known—that have shaped the field, from Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer's Dialectic of Enlightenment (1947) to Michel Aglietta's Money: 5000 Years of Debt and Power (2016).

While there have been surveys and intellectual histories of particular disciplines within the social sciences (history, anthropology, sociology), until now there has been no intellectual history of the social sciences as a unified whole. Far from presenting a fixed and frozen canon, A History of the Social Sciences in 101 Books offers instead a moving, multiform landscape with no settled questions, only an ongoing series of new perspectives and challenges to previously established grounding.

With, for the LIER-FYT, texts of Cyril Lemieux, Gildas Salmon, Yannick Barthe, Julia Christ, Edouard Gardella, Florence Hulak, Bruno Karsenti, Dominique Linhardt and Cédric Moreau de Bellaing.
