A very welcome text ... in many ways more integrated than most theory texts ... I highly recommend this book as a supplement to theory courses. As a broad overview, it will be a most useful addition to the syllabus. Further, the text is exceedingly well written ... The tone of Four Sociological Traditions is highly optimistic and, I feel, helps to foster excitement for the subject. This is a fresh and much needed text. * Sociology * `A solid introductory account of the principal sociological theories.'
Barry Goldson, University of Liverpool `Contains essential focus, is easy to follow and access.'
A. Ducklin, Moray House Institute of Education `It reads well and is not too intimidating in its style of expression. I liked the book and imagine students would, too. Any book that is well-structured, not over-ambitious, and explains clearly is to be welcomed.'
Peter Lynam, South Bank University `Excellent overview of sociological traditions - will really help people starting out in the subject.'
Clive Seale, Goldsmiths College, University of London `A neat and clear introduction to the sociological traditions which will provide a cojent structure of reading for first year undergraduates.'
