Providence College’s Dr. Cedric de Leon from the Department of Sociology has published his first book, Party & Society, with Polity Press. Dr. de Leon examines the ways in which social scientists and other observers have imagined the relationship between parties and society, offering a succinct and lively analysis that outlines the key thinking in the field. Several weeks ago Chris Machado, Providence College’s Academic Communications Director, spoke with Dr. de Leon to discuss Party & Society–video interview here.
