'An alluvial goldfield of social theorists - nuggets lying around all over the place.'

Bob Connell

Who's who in the social theory zoo? This book introduces some of the leading social theorists in short, lively entries by leading Australian scholars. Social Theory covers thinkers from Althusser to Williams, by locals from Alexander to Yeatman.

For beginner and enthusiast alike, it gives a sense of the state of the art in classical and modern social theory.

Social Theory is an indispensable reference for undergraduates, postgraduates, academics and anyone else interested in the ideas behind social and political theory and cultural studies today.
