Description

What does it take to understand society? Modern social theory provides a vast array of answers. Beginning in the 1920s, its development reflects the impact of two world wars and the tremendous social changes brought about by modern technology and communications, as well as the ongoing processof globalization. In Understanding Society Douglas Mann charts not only the major streams of modern social thought but some of the tributaries where less familiar but no less important contributions can be found. This 12-chapter text is designed to be used as a stand-alone text or in conjunctionwith a set of primary readings in a 12-week course on modern social theory or the second half of a full-year course on sociological theory.
