Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This pioneering volume is one of the first books to address the relevance of postmodernism to the social sciences and to explore the applications of postmodern thinking to the study of society. Using case histories and concrete examples, the book addresses both major themes and thinkers and provides detailed discussions of each theory and its methodological applicability.

Book News Annotation:

Integrating philosophy and the humanities with sociological theory and research methods, ten essays address the relevance of postmodernism to the social sciences and explore the application of postmodern thinking to the study of society.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Integrating philosophy and the humanities with sociological theory and research methods, this pioneering volume is one of the first books to address the relevance of postmodernism to the social sciences and to explore the application of postmodern thinking to the study of society.
