Review

'Modern and Postmodern Social Theorizing: Bridging the Divide is a truly outstanding contribution to knowledge in the field. Professor Mouzelis succeeds in unequivocally shedding light in areas where darkness and confusion have been allowed to reign in recent years. He has consolidated his position at the forefront among contemporary sociological theorists.' Eric Dunning, University of Leicester

'This is brilliant, the best formal sociological theory known to me, and a terrific analysis of the state of play of the field.' John Hall, McGill University

'In this masterly survey of developments in social theory over the last half century, Mouzelis identifies the strengths and weaknesses of competing schools of thought and sets out the means of their reconciliation. It shows concisely and convincingly where sociological theory should be going if it is to regain its original path. His resolution of the conceptual shortcomings arising from the unbalanced treatment of the relationships between agency and structure at both macro and micro levels of analysis is brilliantly set out in the concluding Part Five. With its comprehensive grasp of a complex body of work, this much needed reformulation of basic principles is in a class of its own. A tour de force.' David Lockwood, University of Essex

Book Description

There is a growing conflict between modern and postmodern social theorists. Nicos Mouzelis examines this relationship and suggests that there is not a clear divide between modern and postmodern theories. He seeks to show the continuity between the theories and how their perspectives can be brought together.

Format: Paperback
This book is the latest work of Prof. Mouzelis. Here he expands to a greater extent the propositions he forwarded in his "Back to Sociological Theory" and "Sociological Theory: What went wrong?". Although written in a very clear and straightforward manner, this book is basically for graduate (or advanced undergrad) sociology students and, of course, scholars. Mouzelis offers astounding analyses of the works of Giddens, Bourdieu, Archer, Parsons, Marxist theorists, pinpoints their impasses and tries to bring various perspectives together. People interested in sociological theory and the debates surrounding the micro-macro, agency-structure debates should have this book on their desk at all times!!!
