John Scott has provided us with an encyclopaedic tour through the foundations and development of social theory which cautions against the contemporary fragmentation of academic work and demonstrates the continued value of sociologys heritage. The book will become a key resource for students and scholars alike. - Barry Smart, Portsmouth University


This is a comprehensive, critical review of social theory that places leading contributions in their larger context. Written predominantly for students, the scope and range of the subjects and authors dealt with results in one of the most comprehensive introductions to social theory published to date.



Ranging from the philosophical foundations of sociology and the discovery of the social to distinctive sociological approaches, to the significance of issues pertaining to gender and patriarchy, to questions of modernity and post-modernity, the book is comprehensive in subject matter.

Tremendous range of material
Powerful organization of the material around key organizing principles
