The New Social Theory Reader: Contemporary Debates

Voorkant
Steven Seidman, Jeffrey C. Alexander
Psychology Press, 2001 - 409 pagina's
This comprehensive reader will give undergraduate students a structured introduction to the writers and works which have shaped the exciting and yet daunting field of social theory. Throughout the text, key figures are placed in debate with each other and the editorial introductions give an orienting overview of the main points at stake and the areas of agreement and disagreement between the protagonists. The first section sets out some of the main schools of thought, including Habermas and Honneth on New Critical Theory, Bourdieu and Luhmann on Institutional Structuralism and Jameson and Hall on Cultural Studies. Thereafter the reader becomes issues based, looking at:
* Justice and Truth
* Nationalism, Multiculturalism, Globalisation
* gender, sexuality, race, post-coloniality
The New SocialTheory Readeris an essential companion for students who will not just use it on their theory course but return to it again and again for theoretical foundations for substantive subjects and issues.
