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.
