Routledge Handbook of European Sociology, Hardback Book

Routledge Handbook of European Sociology Hardback

Edited by Sokratis M. Koniordos, Alexandros Kyrtsis

Part of the Routledge International Handbooks series


The Routledge Handbook of European Sociology explores the main aspects of the work and scholarship of European sociologists during the last sixty years (1950-2010), a period that has shaped the methods and identity of the sociological craft.

European social theory has produced a vast constellation of theoretical landscapes with a far reaching impact.

At the same time there has been diversity and fragmentation, the influence of American sociology, and the effect of social practice and transformations.

The guiding question is: does European Sociology really exist today, and if the answer is positive, what does this really mean?

Divided into four parts, the Handbook investigates:intellectual and institutional settingsregional variationsthematic variationsEuropean concerns. The Handbook will provides a set of state-of-the-art accounts that break new ground, each contribution teasing out the distinctively European features of the sociological theme it explores.

It will be of interest to students and scholars across the social sciences and humanities.
