en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 03 Feb 2012

Bringing the collection right up to date, this third edition is the definitive guide to current perspectives and approaches in the field of contemporary sociological theory. Organized thematically, this volume includes the most representative material available on topics such as symbolic interactionism, phenomenology, structuralism, network theory, critical theory, feminist theory, and the debates over modernity and postmodernity. The theories of Foucault, Giddens, and Bourdieu are thoroughly represented in order to enable the reader to examine their work in depth and a new section opens up the debate on power and inequality.

Accessible and yet intellectually thorough and with suggestions for further reading throughout, Contemporary Sociological Theory, in conjunction with its complement, Classical Sociological Theory, offers readers a complete overview of sociological theory.
