Since its establishment in 1907, Russell Sage Foundation has regarded the publication and dissemination of social research as an essential part of its contribution to "the improvement of social and living conditions in America." As the principal American Foundation devoted exclusively to the social sciences and as one of the few foundations with a regular publishing program, Russell Sage continues to make a substantial contribution to the social science literature. The Foundation publishes books on a wide variety of subjects, with particular emphasis on work related to our programs: Cultural Contact, the Future of Work, Immigration, and Social Inequality. We also publish work based on special initiatives, such as the Russell Sage Foundation Series on Trust and the 9/11 Initiative, and we are the publisher of the American Sociological Association’s distinguished Rose Series in Sociology. RSF publications present the latest in high-quality social science research and are intended to appeal to a broad audience of students, scholars, and policymakers.
