Talcott Parsons on Economy and Society Hardback
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Social Theory series
'In this remarkable collection of essays, Holton and Turner demonstrate that Parsonian sociology addresses the most central problems of our time - issues of sickness and health, power and inequality, the nature of capitalism and its possible alternatives.
They develop a mature and original perspective on Parsons as the only classical theorist who avoided crippling nostalgia.
Holton and Turner not only talk about Parsonian sociology in a profound and insightful way, they do it, and do it well.
As sociology moves away from the rigid dichotomies of earlier debate, this book will help point the way.' - Jeffrey Alexander, Professor and Director of Graduate Studies in Sociology, UCLA
