From the Publisher"This textbook is a winner. It takes a sociologist accomplished at her craft and with a genuine mastery of the relevant literature to write a social theory text that does justice to the richness of the material while successfully making it accessible to undergraduate readers. This book clearly reveals that Michele Dillon is such a sociologist. Students will be drawn to the well-chosen contemporary examples that make theory come alive while instructors will certainly be pleased by the rich array of pedagogical tools on offer."
–Peter Kivisto, Augustana College
“Impressive in scope and intellectually serious, Michele Dillon’s introduction to sociological theory is also really engaging. Her judgment about what to include is excellent. She clarifies key concepts without oversimplifying and integrates without flattening important differences in perspective. This should be a leading text for all theory teachers to consider.”
–Craig Calhoun, New York University
