The book comprises a broad and up-to-date introduction to the subject. All the conventional areas of sociology are covered, but the author gives special attention to developments which have occurred over the past decade. Notable features of the book are: a stress on the recovery of a historical perspective in sociology; emphasis on the significance of global developments in social life; sysstematic discussion of areas of analysis usually absent from textbooks in the subject, such as military power and war, or communications and the mass media. The work also strongly emphasizes a comparative perspective. The author's other books include "The Constitution of Society" and "Social Theory and Modern Sociology".show more
