‘Anthony Elliott is one of the most important commentators on social theory and in this volume he has used his expertise to put together a first rate collection of essays showing to all levels of students - and their teachers too - why theory matters. Wide-ranging, accessible and alive, this is a collection in which to be confident and from which to think about the world and the questions it raises.'Professor Keith Tester, University of Hull, UK

‘A distinctly fascinating introduction to the world of social theory which extends beyond boundaries of disciplines and cultures. This book will be a great guide for students all over the world.’Professor Atsushi Sawai, Keio University, Japan
