"A brilliant synthetic essay of theoretical importance in its own right.` Jeffrey C. Alexander, Yale University, USA
`McLennan takes us on an absorbing journey that will provide illumination to newcomers to sociology and seasoned veterans alike. This is a fascinating version of the story so far, and an expansive vision of the road ahead.` Rob Stones, University of Essex, UK
What does sociology involve? How did its key concepts and perspectives develop? What is the scope and relevance of sociology today? These are the fundamental questions that motivate every new and returning student of sociology, and they lie at the heart of this unique book. Situating sociology within the wider context of social theory, Story of Sociology takes us from the intellectual tensions of Enlightenment thought, through the American-dominated twentieth century, to the latest debates in the discipline. Accessible and inspiring, succinct yet challenging, this book is an ideal companion to any introductory sociology or social theory course.
`This is an excellent short introduction to sociological theory, superbly capturing the dilemmas of sociological argument as well as its different traditions and sensibilities.` John Holmwood, University of Nottingham, UK `Story of Sociology is more than a simple history; it is a compelling invitation to enter the sociological imagination. Extraordinary in its scope and clarity, this book links current departures to enduring themes and captures the dynamic positioning of sociology in the contemporary age.` Lisa Adkins, University of Newcastle, Australia"
