Beschreibung:

The latest edited title published in association with the ISA. Twenty chapters from a very strong group of international authors identify, question and transform key assumptions within modern sociology.

"This is an important and thought-provoking collection of contemporary articles on the current crisis in social theory."
- Professor Roger Penn, Lancaster University

"With a comprehensive vision, great sociologists from around the world address the challenges of the new century."
- Professor Michael Burawoy

, University of California, Berkeley



Over the past century, the field of sociology has experienced extraordinary expansion and vitality. But is this growth positive or negative - a promise of diversity or a threat of fragmentation?

This critical volume explores the meaning of sociology and sociological knowledge in light of the recent growth and institutionalization of the discipline. A stellar group of international authors powerfully identify, question, and transform key assumptions in sociology.


Leading us through the challenges faced by sociology, and the possible strategies for addressing them in the future, the book includes key issues such as:



  • globalization

  • development

  • social policy

  • inequality.


An important companion for advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers engaged with contemporary sociological theory, sociology of knowledge and sociological analysis.
