"This e-book contributes to the growing to be debates approximately social concept and its position via a dialogue of the ways that gender and race contributed to the exclusion of significant thinkers from the sociological canon."

- John Hughes, Lancaster University

Who makes up the 'canon' of sociology - and who does not? Does sociology desire a canon within the first position? Beyond Social Theory deals an leading edge and passionate contribution to debates at the heritage and improvement of sociology and the exclusion of theorists - who're woman, black, or either - from the mainstream of social theorizing.

With compelling biographical sketches bringing the dynamics in the back of the 'canon' to existence, Kate Reed focuses sharp research at the exclusion of theorists on race and gender from vital debates on inequality.

An very important contribution to the controversy on non-exclusionary conception, this e-book significantly examines latest bills of the historical past of the self-discipline, situating the improvement of social conception inside of a much wider social and political context.
