SAGE Publications, 2010年5月13日 - 661 頁
The Social Lens: An Invitation to Social and Sociological Theory, Second Edition, is an undergraduate social theory textbook organized around the issues of modernity and the influences of Talcott Parsons and the Frankfurt school. Author Kenneth Allan engages students in the history of social change that spawned the major sociological theories and shows how these theories can be applied to current social influences. Chosen for the diversity of their perspectives and their suitability for introducing students to contemporary theory, a wide variety of theorists materialize in the text, with their individual voices vividly intact. The extensive use of relevant quotes throughout the book demonstrates the power and poetry of theory to students exploring this area for the first time.
