Description:

This fourth edition includes an exploration of globalization and a new section on the theories of global and world order. It provides a thoughtful and rigorous, yet highly accessible and reader-friendly account of social theory. The author combines social analysis and moral advocacy, to demonstrate how social theory can and does - and sometimes doesn't - work within the public and political sphere.
