  • Against Eurocentrismby Rajani Kannepalli Kanth

    Palgrave Macmillan 2006; US$ 80.00

    This book renders an uncompromising verdict on the 'scourge' of our millennium: modernism, itself the artifact of certain late Eurocentric propensities. Kanth argues that while modernism is possessed of some virtues, they are purchased at far too high a cost--indeed a cost that neither the species nor the planet can, on any scale, find affordable.... more...

  • Habermas and Contemporary Societyby John Sitton

    Palgrave Macmillan 2003; US$ 39.00

    Over the last four decades Jürgen Habermas has forged an innovative and much-discussed theory of contemporary capitalist society. Building on Max Weber's thesis that the dynamic of capitalism actually erodes individual freedom and the meaningfulness of social life - famously resulting in a culture of 'specialists without spirit, sensualists without... more...

  • Methodology of the Oppressedby Chela Sandoval; Angela Y. Davis

    University of Minnesota Press 2000; US$ 60.00

    In a work with far-reaching implications, Chela Sandoval does no less than revise the genealogy of theory over the past thirty years, inserting what she terms ?U.S. Third World feminism? into the narrative in a way that thoroughly alters our perspective on contemporary culture and subjectivity. more...

  • Negotiating Postmodernismby Wayne Gabardi

    University of Minnesota Press 2000; US$ 60.00

    Joining the modern-postmodern debate, this book suggests that the polarizing polemics of the radical postmodernists who once dominated the discussion have given way to a new "critical postmodernism" characterized by dialogue, accommodation, and synthesis. A comprehensive survey, Negotiating Postmodernism also marks the arrival of a powerful,... more...

  • Max Weberby Stephen Kalberg

    Wiley 2008; US$ 140.95

    This unique volume gathers Weber's writings on a broad array of themes, from the nature of work, to the political culture of democracy, to the uniqueness of the West, to the character of the family and race relations, to the role of science and the fate of ethical action in the modern world. Gathers Weber’s writings in a comprehensive collection,... more...

  • Nationalism, Social Theory and Durkheimby Dr James Dingley

    Palgrave Macmillan 2008; US$ 110.00

    Ethno-national and religious identity and violence dominate modern politics, from Northern Ireland to terrorism in Sri Lanka, the former Yugoslavia or Afghanistan and Iraq. This book shows that social theory should be a major tool in helping explain national, religious and identity problems. more...

  • Capitalism, Socialism and Democracyby Joseph A. Schumpeter

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 30.95

    Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy remains one of the greatest works of social theory written in the twentieth Century. Schumpeter's contention that the seeds of capitalism's decline were internal, and his equal and opposite hostility to centralist socialism have perplexed, engaged and infuriated readers since the book's first publication in 1943.... more...

  • Zygmunt Baumanby Peter Beilharz

    SAGE Publications 2000; US$ 58.00

    This measured and thoughtful book provides a comprehensive critical commentary on Bauman's social theory. It explores the roots of his ideas in questions of capital and labour, and explains how these ideas flourished in Bauman's later writings on culture, intellectuals, utopia, the holocaust, modernity and postmodernism. Bauman's work has been... more...

  • Sociological Traditionsby T N Madan

    SAGE India 2011; US$ 39.95

    Sociological Traditions looks at the sociology of India from two perspectives: first, understanding the cultural traditions of India with special reference to religious and ethical values; and second, exploring the growth of the sociological traditions of India. Divided in two parts, the book goes beyond mere description of the main religious traditions... more...

  • The SAGE Handbook of Social Network Analysisby John Scott; Peter J. Carrington

    SAGE Publications 2011; US$ 75.00
