  • Bourdieu's Theory of Social Fieldsby Mathieu Hilgers; Eric Mangez

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 48.95

    Bourdieu?s theory of social fields is one of his key contributions to social sciences and humanities. However, it has never been subjected to genuine critical examination.

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 48.95

    The writings of Ibn Khald?n, particularly the Muqaddimah (Prolegomenon) have rightly been regarded as being sociological in nature. For this reason, Ibn Khald?n has been widely regarded as the founder of sociology, or at least a precursor of modern sociology.
