Book Summary of Introducing Social Theory

This revised edition of Pip Jones's extremely popular introduction to social theory, now benefiting from the collaboration of Shaun Le Boutillier and Liz Bradbury, has been carefully and thoroughly updated with the latest developments in this continually changing field. Written in a refreshingly lucid and engaging style, Introducing Social Theory provides readers with a wide-ranging, well organized and thematic introduction to all the major thinkers, issues and debates in classical and contemporary social theory.

Introducing Social Theory traces the development of social theorizing from the classical ideas about modernity of Durkheim, Marx and Weber, right up to a uniquely accessible review of contemporary theoretical controversies in sociology surrounding post-modernity and reflexive sociology. With great clarity, the authors explain the ideas of seminal thinkers such as Foucault, Bauman, Habermas, Beck, Bourdieu and Giddens, as well as paying increased attention to other important contributions from theorists such as Margaret Archer, Fredric Jameson and George Ritzer.

Introducing Social Theory is the ideal textbook for students at all levels taking courses in sociology, from A-level students to undergraduates, who are looking to engage with social theory. Remarkably easy to follow and understand, the new edition lives up to its predecessor's goal that students need never be intimidated by social theory again.

Michaela November 01, 2010 review from Goodreads

`Introducing Social Theory was recommended by my Contemporary Social Theory teacher (this is one of my third year university modules) because, as the teacher put it, it gives you a starting mind set and way of looking at theory rather than being very in-depth about any particular one.Overall, it'...

Nakib April 17, 2012 review from Goodreads

Not having read anything about Socialism, Marxism or Western feminism before, I picked up the book and was actually quite impressed. However I couldn't go past after half the book was finished because at times the language gets really technical and you will have to be acquainted with some previou...
