Als sie Kinder waren, wuchsen John Connolly und James „Whitey“ Bulger zusammen in den rauen Straßen im Süden von Boston auf. Jahrzehnte später, Mitte der 70er, treffen sie erneut aufeinander. Connolly ist mittlerweile für das FBI in Boston tätig, und Whitey gilt als einer der skrupellosesten Akteure der irischen Mafia. Connolly, der zügig die Karriereleiter erklimmen will, setzt alles daran, Bulger als Informant für das FBI anzuheuern. Sie vereinbaren ein Treffen und einigen sich schnell. Doch Bulger hat ganz eigene Vorstellungen davon, wie ihm diese Zusammenarbeit nützen könnte ... Die wahre Geschichte eines verhängnisvollen Abkommens zwischen dem FBI und der irischen Mafia, das vollkommen außer Kontrolle geriet und alle Beteiligten in den Abgrund riss.

Sociology faces troubling developments as it enters its second century in the United States. A loss of theoretical coherence and a sense of disciplinary fragmentation, a decline in the quality of its recruits, the cooptation of its clients, a muted public voice, and sinking prestige in governmental circles—these are only a few of the trends signalling a need for renewed debate about how sociology is organized. In this volume, some of the most authoritative voices in the field confront these conditions, offering a variety of perspectives as they challenge sociologists to self-examination.
