need a social theory book?
As long time readers know, I have been working on a social theory book. It has been read by many people. Now, I want to test drive it. If you need a book for a class, email me and I’ll make a special deal. Highlights:
- Short book organized around major ideas/theoretical ideas in sociology (e.g., inequality, institutions).
- Illustrated with modern sociological research, not just classic texts.
- Aimed at upper division/early grad students OR non-sociologists who want a summary of modern social theory.
- Written in an academic but non-textbooky style. In other words, it’s an essay on how sociologists do theory with empirical examples, not a conventional theory textbook.
Compliment to the traditional theory anthology/reading list or can be read by itself. Operators are waiting.
