Molecular Biology of the Cell: Problems Book. Essential Cell Biology. The Biology of Cancer. Using his decades of field experience and creative fiction he explores the daily reality of his "informants"-the Barrio Professors-and uncovers the clash between scientific models and local experience over schizophrenia, the political workings of community, and the power of serendipity.

Prize-winning sociologist Lloyd H. Rogler, a founder of cultural psychiatry, gives us an intimately revealing, brilliantly narrated account of fieldwork from San Juan, Puerto Rico to inner-city New Haven. Using his decades of field experience and creative fiction he explores the daily reality of his "informants"―the Barrio Professors―and uncovers the clash between scientific models and local experience over schizophrenia, the political workings of community, and the power of serendipity. Rogler's multi-layered exploration of the relationship between researcher and community, as well as his candid assessment of field strategies, make the book useful also for methods courses. Barrio Professors is engrossing enough for the general public and an excellent text for courses in ethnic studies, sociology, qualitative methods, psychiatry, public health, anthropology, and social work.

Barrio Professors by Lloyd Rogler is the kind of writing and storytelling we should all be experiencing more of in our culture. Rogler, a highly repected sociologist, takes the reader on the journey of his young life and the early beginnings of his career. His masterful storytelling and sharp character development vividly illumine the way as the reader travels back in time and space from Iowa, Puerto Rico and Connecticut, from the 1940s to the 1960s. The images he sets before the reader are so vivid that reading the book felt more like watching a movie in my mind. In fact, I think this book is very good material for the theatre. In the telling of these very real-life stories Rogler is at once humble and highly intelligent, poignant and humorous. Rogler's wit and brilliance had me laughing out loud, as well as nodding in agreement with many of his astute sociological insights. I found the book so engaging that I could not stop myself from writing all over the margins in my own imagined conversations with the author.
In the beginning of the book we see Rogler develop from a young graduate student dedicated to experimental sociology, practiced within carefully constructed settings apart from real life, to that of a mature social scientist with a firm belief in the value of naturalistic sociology, participant-observation, the relevance of culture, and clearly communicated conclusions intended for the benefit of all. Through it all he sheds much needed light on the many struggles involved in the human condition. It's not as clean as carefully written standardized tests and surveys with their constant manipulation of numbers and variables. The kind of research Rogler advocates, in contrast, is what gets at the truth of the matter and contributes to more constructive policy-making. Statistics are considerably less meaningful without the stories and cultural clues behind them. Bravo to Rogler for knocking some much needed sense into the ivory tower of academia.
Part two of the book describes his experiences studying Hispanic immigrants and their lives within the framework of American culture and institutions. Vincente Serrano and Dona Cristina are just two of many especially interesting people in the book. Rogler is incredibly adept at showing the reader all aspects of humanity in its fullness as these people, like people everywhere, confront and try to overcome the many obstacles preventing them from achieiving the success for which they hope.
The Epilogue: Conversations with Charlie shows us where Rogler received the foundations for his sociological imagination, cross-disciplinary curiousity, and compassion for those constantly challenged by the conspiracies of poverty. Charlie, Rogler's father, was also a sociologist. It has been a privilege to be welcomed into the lives of all of the characters in Barrio Professors. There is so much to learn from their experiences and those of the author. I am certainly not alone in my hope that Lloyd Rogler will continue to share more of his life stories in one form or another. Barrio Professors is surely just the tip of the iceberg.
I highly recommend this book to a wide range of readers. All social scientists and their students would benefit greatly from Rogler's academic insights. Anyone interested in writing would gain much from Rogler's examples of setting, characterization, and just plain honest storytelling whether they are interested in fiction or nonfiction such as this book Barrio Professors. Good writing and storytelling is fast becoming a lost art in modern day American life. The great pleasure of being exposed to it in a book such as Barrio Professors reminds us all of the need to focus more on these skills. The lessons gleaned from such storytelling benefit us all for many generations to come. In many respects this book reminded me of the anthropologist Margaret Mead's autobiography Blackberries in Winter, which I also highly recommend. Both these books would be especially good for anyone considering their path in life and the need to round out their studies at all stages of their education with a cross-disciplinary approach. The bigger the world becomes the more we all realize how interdependent all subjects truly are. Of course, this book would also be a good read for anyone interested in Hispanic studies. This book would be valuable for anyone interested in the human condition. In fact, I even shared some of the more humorous and ironic stories in this book with my two young sons (ages 8 and 13) who also appreciated them.

I was blessed enough to have had Dr. Lloyd Rogler as a professor at Fordham University.
I was delighted to hear about this most recent book and bought it immediately.
I am still laughing at the first chapter, and can't wait to choose chapter selections for my high school students to read! I recommend this book as a useful text for sociology, psychology and Latin American Studies courses, especially those focusing on research strategies, ethics, mental health and culture.
