Current Perspectives in Social Theory: v. 13

Hardback
Recent Developments in the Theory of Social Structure is an integrated collection of essays reviewing and assessing progress in social structural analysis since 1970. Organizationally, the book is divided into six parts corresponding to six analytical levels of social structure: social relationships, social networks, intraorganizational relations, interorganizational relations, societal stratification and the world system. The ten essays expound and assess what has been learned about the influences of social structure on human behaviour at each level of analysis. In the introduction, the editors examine the metatheoretical issues in structural analysis and promote the cause of theory integration.
