Understanding Social Theory

£14.99

Product description

"This is a robust text - challenging and provocative and one which students will benefit from reading. Layder guides the reader through a large body of relevant literature. He draws attention to the strengths and weaknesses of particular approaches as he sees them and he is not afraid to offer his own judgements on the issues and problems. A jargon-free textbook that provides an introduction to the core issues in social theory. It includes: Chapter previews, summaries and a glossary of key terms. A 'problem focus' that encourages students to acquire skills of argument and discussion. A concluding chapter relating theory to social domains. Relevant examples from everyday life to illustrate key theoretical issues. It is essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students of social and sociological theory.

The paperback book is in very good condition. No writing and marking in the book and the spine is tight.
