As the new year begins, it is increasingly clear that one has entered a new era in the social, political and economic life of U.S. people and peoples around the world. The challenge to humanist sociologists and other progressive intellectuals is greater today than ever before. Through the scholarship and political practice one must offer resistance and alternatives to the growing wave of reaction and counter-revolution, to the militarization of the economy at the expense of vital human services and programs and to the very real threat of war and human destruction. One has the responsibility of explaining how and why these developments have arisen and what can be done to counter them and of offering a direction which leads to the development of humane social relations, equality and peace for all peoples. The challenge is urgent and calls for an equally urgent response. The editor of the periodical Humanity and Society has thanked artist Christie Wells, for her contribution of the new cover. The "Book Reviews" have been expanded into "Essays on Books and Culture" and will include traditional book reviews as well as longer review essays on books and related cultural forms of interest to humanist sociologists.
