Introduction to Sociological Theory (2nd edition) / Michele Dillon

£14.99

Product description

Subtitle: Theorists, Concepts, and their Applicability to the Twenty-First Century
This paperback book is in very good condition. The cover has slight edge wear, but is overall in very good condition with very little general wear. About a dozen pages have been dog-eared, so have creases across the corner. There are inked marginal notes, lines and underlinings in 5 of the 15 chapters (Emile Durkheim, Max Weber, Talcott Parsons and Robert Merton: Functionalism and Modernization, Critical theory: Technology, Culture and Politics and Feminist Theories) and the Introduction, but the text is legible throughout and the other chapters are in very good condition.

The extensively revised and updated second edition combines carefully chosen primary quotes with wide-ranging discussion and everyday illustrative examples to provide an in-depth introduction to classical and contemporary sociological theory. Combines classical and contemporary theory in a single, integrated text Short biographies and historical timelines of significant events provide context to theorists' ideas Innovatively builds on excerpts from original theoretical writings with detailed discussion of the concepts and ideas under review Includes new examples of current social processes in China, South Korea, India, Latin America, the Middle East, and other non-Western societies Additional resources, available at www.wiley.com/go/dillon, include multiple choice and essay questions, PowerPoint slides with multimedia links to content illustrative of sociological processes, a list of complementary primary readings, a quotation bank, and other background materials
