Pitirim Sorokin certainly counts as one of the greatest sociologists of the 20th century. He was forced into exile in 1922. The truth about his deep involvement in the social upheavals in Russia at the time was long suppressed in his homeland, as were his sociological works in Russian. As Russia now once again takes up its place in the international academic community, interest in Sorokin's work and life is growing. The present volume produces and analyzes his previously unknown essay on suicide and traces his intellectual and political development before exile.
