Reviews
First published in 1989, this book was written in response to student needs to see "the forest for the trees" when relating specific insight and analyses to the larger theoretical claims of the discipline. The book helps students to re-examine theories and models in a less ethnocentric way.

New sections are included on interactionism and feminism, race and development, the theoretical consequences of the collapse of the USSR, women and development, and expanded treatment of Marx's Labour Theory of Value.

Anton L. Allahar is a professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Western Ontario.
