In a review of best-selling sociology books, Bill Domhoff of sociology and psychology emerged as one of only two authors with four books on the list. The list, which appears in the March issue of the journal Contemporary Sociology, includes 53 books published since World War II that had sold more than 50,000 copies through 1995. Domhoff's book Who Rules America?, published by Prentice Hall in 1967, holds the No. 12 spot on the list, having sold between 200,000 and 299,000 copies. His other books on the list were Higher Circles, Who Rules America Now?, and Powers That Be.

Professor of music Leta Miller was asked to write on Lou Harrison for the Lincoln Center playbill, which covers a series of concerts at the center April 26-28 in celebration of the composer's 80th birthday. Miller wrote the biographical sketch of Harrison as well as program notes. The playbill also includes a section on instruments and instrumentation excerpted from a book on Harrison, coauthored by Miller and professor of music Fredric Lieberman, which will be published soon by Oxford University Press.
