The family of Sorokin and the careers of his two sons are of intrinsic interest to me.

I have posted here items re Sorokin’s oldest son, Peter P. Sorokin (1935-2015).  They are self-explanatory.

This is the dedication page of the first volume of Sorokin’s Social and Cultural Dynamics (1937). Peter and Sergei were Sorokin’s sons.

Few would disagree, I am sure, that there was something wonderful — authentic, deep, sincere — about Sorokin the person. And I feel this can be seen in his family and the Russian émigré milieu he and they moved in: their closest associates and friends.
