Author: Peter Wagner
Publisher: London ; New York : Sage Publications, 2001.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats

The book attempts to restore that ability by retrieving some of the key questions that sociologists tend to gloss over, inescapability and attainability.
