Roberta Garner (author), Black Hawk Hancock (author), Grace Budrys (author). This book provides a clear summary of how postmodern approaches are becoming more entrenched within sociology, and it is a good textbook for teachers interested in this topic. This is indeed a paradigm shift as they blend traditional conflict theory with social constructionism to explain and explore all manner of phenomena, including discourse, body politics, the microlevels of everyday life, discipline and domination. It is important to understand conflict and coercion as done "to" people but also to understand that people have a hand in their own liberation.

Roberta Garner, Black Hawk Hancock (You?) 2014. 7.

The third edition of this popular reader reflects considerable changes. With over seventy readings representing a wide diversity of theorists, it offers a breadth of coverage not available in other collections. The framework for understanding theory as a set of conversations over time is maintained and deepened, with a focus on key transitional theorists who helped pave the way from classical to contemporary theory. New contextual and biographical materials surround the primary readings, and each chapter includes a study guide with key terms, discussion questions, and innovative classroom exercises. The result is a fresh and expansive take on social theory that foregrounds a plurality of perspectives and defines contemporary trends in the field, while being both an accessible and manageable teaching tool.

I purchased rid book for my social theory class this past spring. The readings are going to be tough at some point, but the selection of readings and the concepts inside are fundamental to understanding society and its structures. That said, if this book is a required text, there's no way you can avoid buying this. It's probably going to be used heavily and its going to be integral to the course. I've made it through some classes where I've been able to avoid buying a text, one way or another, but not with this one.

The readings are fine, but what textbook DOESN'T HAVE AN INDEX?! It's madness!
