Sociology Books

In 2003, as part of the 40th Anniversary celebrations, the TASA Executive undertook to do a survey of the Most Influential Books in Australian Sociology (MIBAS). The MIBAS survey, modelled on similar exercises by the International and American Sociological Associations, was divided into two stages: nomination and ranking. More information about the MIBAS process and the Top 10 Most Influential Books is available below:

Top 10 Most Influential Books
In 2003, as part of the 40th Anniversary celebrations, the TASA Executive undertook to do a survey of the Most Influential Books in Australian Sociology (MIBAS). The MIBAS survey, modelled on similar exercises by the International and American Sociological Associations, was divided into two stages: nomination and ranking.

MIBAS Recipients
In early 2003 all TASA members were asked to nominate up to five books published since 1963, which they considered to have most profoundly shaped the sociological scholarship in this country. They could be of sociological interest, on Australian sociology, books about Australian society or by Australian sociologists (broadly defined). Over 60 books were nominated via our members only section of the TASA website.

Following the nominations, members were asked to select and rank their top 10 from the list of nominated books. The voting closed in October 2003. The final Top Ten was announced at that year’s TASA Conference in Armidale.

MIBAS paper
A paper discussing the MIBAS results was published in the Journal of Sociology:

Zlatko Skrbis & John Germov 2004, ‘The most influential books in Australian sociology (MIBAS),1963–2003’, Journal of Sociology 40(3): 283–303
