Rethinking Social Theory

Front Cover
SAGE, Mar 27, 2004 - Social Science - 225 pages
Roger Sibeon's distinctive new book forms part of a movement towards what many others have referred to as the `return' to sociological theory and method.

Offering both description and critique of contemporary theoretical and illustrative empirical materials, the goal of this book is a renewal of sociology and social theory that will facilitate worthwhile social knowledge that contributes to an understanding of the practical problems of making sense of social theory.
