Identity and Control: A Structural Theory of Social Action

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

In proposing a comprehensive network theory that cuts across the range of social sciences, Harrison White rejects conventional hierarchical models and focuses instead on efforts of control in a social structure described as a tangle of locked-in practices. His analyses draw from English social anthropology, natural science, French rhetorics, mathematics, German industrial history, control engineering, and American pragmatism.

Hardback book without dust jacket, but in very good condition.
