Motivation: The editor in charge gave 1 sentence all-too-terse overview, basically along the line of the reviewers are unhappy and you need to satisfy them in the first round. No specific focus from the editor. One reviewer seemed neutral to positive and suggestions/criticisms very addressable. The 2nd reviewer gave very short review that the paper didn't account for the vast sociology literature without citing a single book or paper. We revised the paper as best we could given the non-direction or impossible direction of citing all of the sociology literature. In the second review, the first reviewer became hypercritical but with no substantive criticisms, while the second reviewer recommended acceptance. The editor sided somehow with the first reviewer, and we can only conclude the editor never liked the paper. Would never submit another paper here. Reviews and editor capricious with no guidance provided.

Motivation: Overall, this was a good experience. It was a little slower response time than I would have liked but otherwise the reviewers were fair and process went well.
