Dissecting the social : on the principles of analytical sociology

Author: Peter Hedström
Publisher: Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2005.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Building on his earlier, influential contributions to contemporary debates on social theory, Professor Hedström argues for a systematic development of sociological theory so that it has the explanatory power and precision to inform sociological research and understanding, qualities lacking in much of the grand social theorizing currently fashionable.
