Social Theory

“A rich, highly textured, historically sweeping, and strikingly inclusive collection” —Jeffrey Alexander, Yale University

For nearly a quarter-century, Charles Lemert has shared his love of social theory, and the questions it explores, in this collection of readings. With 140 selections that begin in the nineteenth century and end in 2015, Social Theory charts the long arc of the development of the field. Revised and updated with a new section exploring social theory at the limits of the social, Lemert’s Social Theory remains essential reading.

Privilege

“The diverse voices found in this book would add a unique and thought-provoking perspective to any undergraduate course examining the many aspects of oppression.” —MultiCultural Review

In an era when “diversity” is too often shorthand for “of color” and/or “female,” the personal and analytical essays in this collection explore the multifaceted nature of social location and consider how gender, class, race, sexual orientation, (dis)ability, and religion interact to create nuanced layers of privilege and oppression.
