Human agents and social structures

Peter J. Martin and Alex Dennis

Published by Manchester University Press

  • A concise and coherent critique of dominant positions in the structure/agency debate, which has been central to theoretical discussions in the social sciences for the past two decades Deliberately controversial, the book will be widely reviewed and discussed, even by those hostile to its basic argument Considers general issues arising from the structure/agency debate and relates them both to 'classic' social theory (Marx, Durkheim and Weber), and to the recent theorists who have had most influence in the social sciences: Bourdieu, Foucault, Giddens and Habermas Clearly written and with a useful bibliography, this book will form an excellent basis for courses or modules on social theory for postgraduates or advanced undergraduates
