Editorial Reviews

Review

a I think this is an outstanding book. The coverage is comprehensive, the lines of thought and exposition are clear, and the level of discussion is very high yet remarkably lively and accessible. It has an underlying intellectual seriousness and engagement which shines out through the individual chapters, and the authora s unwillingness to make do with secondary analyses and received ideas gives it a strength and freshness of approach which is extremely welcome.a Professor William Outhwaite, University of Sussex --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This book was part of the literature for my Sociology exam. My main field is not sociology and I'm not a native English speaker, so the book was pretty hard to read for me (the language used is not the easiest). I guess the author does a pretty good overview of the Theory in the previous century, covering most important thinkers in the field. For people who already have a background knowledge on the topics discussed, it will be interesting to read Baert's opinions about all the theories. The biggest disadvantage, a really bothering one, is that the author uses a lot (A LOT! Way too much.) of enumeration. There are lists of arguments on every single page and it's really easy to get confused with which list goes where and which list is within another list.
