Kessel Material in TSS

Since October 1998 I've invested the bulk of my professional and sociological endeavors into creating and developing The Sociology Shop. In addition to its very creation and the inclusion of a variety of other materials, I've also included original materials and original adaptations of other materials. The following is a list of these types of alphabetical order. I feel they represent my ongoing passion for Sociology, the teaching of it, and my dedication to professional development.
