Raewyn Connell, based at University of Sydney, has been recognized so far as an international scholar in gender . Empire and the creation of a social science presents an inquiry into the very origins of sociology and scrutinizes the writings of a variety of early classics.

Raewyn Connell, based at University of Sydney, has been recognized so far as an international scholar in gender studies (among others: Masculinities, Cambridge: Polity Press, 1995; Gender, Cambridge: Polity Press 2001). She has now published a book in the field of general sociology and epistemology, where again, her main interest is in uncovering schemes of domination.

Southern Theory: The Global Dynamics of Knowledge in Social Science. Sydney, Allen & Unwin Australia; Cambridge, Polity Press. Starting with a critique of Northern sociology, this tells the story of my encounters with social thought from sub-Saharan Africa, Iran, India, Latin America and Australia, and then reflects on the nature of a global social science. It’s deliberately not a treatise, but an attempt to trace conceptual learning across spaces and cultural divides.

Southern Theory presents the case for a radical re-thinking of social science and its relationships to knowledge, power .

Southern Theory presents the case for a radical re-thinking of social science and its relationships to knowledge, power and democracy on a world scale. Mainstream social science pictures the world as understood by the educated and affluent in Europe and North America. From Weber and Keynes to Friedman and Foucault, theorists from the global North dominate the imagination of social scientists, and the reading lists of students, all over the world.

Southern Theory: Social Science and the Global Dynamics of Knowledge. 0745642497 (ISBN13: 9780745642499). In this book Raewyn Connell builds a compelling critique of sociology that draws out many of the problems of using metropolitan ideas in the periphery. There are three sections – a critical outline of the development of sociology and critique of analyses of globalisation, a set of case studies of scholars from outside the periphery (west Africa, Latin America, Iran, India) whose work shows the limitations of metropolitan theory, and a case for sociological analyses grounded in place, in which she draws on Australia (and she says, the place.

Connell's sociology emphasises the historical nature of social reality and the transformative character of social .

Connell's sociology emphasises the historical nature of social reality and the transformative character of social practice. Her writing tries to combine empirical detail, structural analysis, critique, and relevance to practice. Much of her empirical work uses biographical (life-history) interviewing, in education, family life and workplaces. Her 2007 book Southern Theory extended this to the global dynamics of knowledge production, critiquing the "Northern" bias of mainstream social science which is predominately produced in "metropolitan" universities. In doing so, she argues, metropolitan social theory fails to adequately explain social phenomena in the Southern experience.

Thus, by default, I In this book, Raewyn Connell makes a strong considered the constructions of other forms claim to ‘propose a new path for social theory of knowledge in such global contexts. It places that will help social science to serve democratic ‘southern’ names on the ‘northern’ lectern (al- purposes on a world scale’ (page vii)

In Southern Theory Raewyn Connell presents the case for a new 'world social science' - one that is inclusive of many voices - by arguing for a more democratic global recognition of social theory from societies outside the dominant European and North American metropole. Intellectual production of the majority 'southern' world does in fact include theory, though its contribution is often marginalised and intellectually discredited by the metropole. Connell shows how social theory about the modern world from peripheral societies is equal in intellectual rigour and is often of greater political relevance to our changing world. Beginning with an examination of the hidden assumptions of modern general theory, Southern Theory looks to the 'southern' social experience and the theories that have emerged from Australia, Indigenous peoples, Latin America, India, Africa, Islam and other post-colonial societies, as sources of important and vital contributions to world social science. These myriad theories offer valuable perspectives so crucial to the application of social theory in the contemporary world, having the power to transform the influence of the metropolitan hegemony on social thought by mutual regard and interaction. Southern Theory is a major new work in social theory, drawing on anthropology, history, psychology, philosophy, economics and cultural studies, with wide-ranging implications for the social sciences in the 21st century.

An excellent book, well written and comprehensive. Good background and theory on how Sociology works and where it came from and its progress.

This is an excellent overview of selected theories from non Euro-American countries that are generally overlooked in "Northern" discussions of "gender" and "theories." This should whet serious scholars' interests in theories written in "other" countries.

Connell throws down the gauntlet: this book challenges the underlying dynamics whereby theorists in Europe and North America lay claim to `universality' and why academics based in the world periphery, or external to the metropole, are marginalized.

By examining the tacit assumptions in the general theories of Anthony Giddens, Pierre Bourdieu and James S. Coleman, Connell calls into question the failure of Northern thinkers to analyse the asymmetrical power relationships still active in the aftermath of colonialism. Connell describes this failure as the `most devastating historic limitation' of the social sciences. Claims of theoretical universality are deconstructed to reveal not only social, cultural and intellectual exclusion, but form part of what Connell refers to as the `grand erasure', whereby the majority of the world's people are viewed exclusively through a eurocentric, hegemonic lens. Connell also questions what is meant (and assumed) by the `global' in `globalisation', when those writing from the `centre' or metropole, continue to have exclusive influence.

This book speaks not only to existing power relations between intellectuals and institutions in the North, and those in the world periphery, it provides a framework for Southern intellectuals to assess, rebut, assert and contribute.
