Social Theory : Classical and Contemporary - A Critical Perspective Paperback / softback


Social Theory provides a sophisticated yet highly accessible introduction to classical and contemporary social theories.

The author's concise presentation allows students and instructors to focus on central themes.

The text lets theorists speak for themselves, presenting key passages from each theorist's corpus, bringing theory to life.

The approach allows instructors the opportunity to help students learn to unpack sometimes complex prose, just as it offers inroads to class discussion.

Chapters on Addams and early feminism, on Habermas and the Frankfurt School, on Foucault, and on globalization and social movements round out contemporary coverage.

The book presents and explains key theories, just as it provides an introduction to central debates about them.
