What People are Saying About This
"At last here is a serious attempt to move beyond mere 'decorative social theory' to engage in a highly sensitive and intelligent manner with a central aspect of the human condition. Dr Wilkinson's brave and timely book should be read not just by all students of sociological theory but also by those many thoughtful people who are pained , angry or bemused by man's inhumaity to man."
—Professor Ray Pahl, University of Essex
