Contemporary Social Theory: Investigation and Application begins with an examination of social theory and is followed by a review of the major schools of thought. It provides an in-depth analysis and examination of social theory and its relevancy to social society in general. Each of the chapters on the major schools of thought review the basic tenets along with a discussion of some of the major theorists found in each school, their influences, and their concepts and contributions to social theory. Each of these chapters concludes with a relevancy section which serves as a review of the theory and offers criticisms of the school of thought. The application of these concepts and contributions are found throughout each chapter. An interesting and thoughtful book for those interested in the history, present, and future of social theory.
