The International Sociological Association has created a new quadrennial award for Excellence in Scholarship and Practice, and its first recipient is Professor Immanuel Wallerstein. The award is intended for a sociologist “who advances and promotes sociologicaL knowledge and practice through outstanding contributions to the discipline, the profession, and the ISA.” In the words of the ISA’s current president, Michael Burawoy, the award is the greatest honor the ISA can bestow. Professor Wallerstein will receive the award formally at the 2014 Congress of the ISA in Yokohama. Congratulations, Immanuel!
