Social Sciences

De Gruyter’s range in the social sciences is characterized by a great level of diversity. Titles in this area are published by our De Gruyter Oldenbourg imprint and also by publishing partners such as transcript, Böhlau Verlag and Harvard University Press.

Textbooks on methods used in empirical social research, special sociologies and political science are the core element of De Gruyter Oldenbourg’s range here. Our partner transcript enriches our range with contemporary aspects such as digital society and transculturality.
