Reviews

Nick Crossley's Key Concepts in Critical Social Theory is a useful reference tool for undergraduates of all majors trying to navigate the complexities of sociological theory. Key Concepts may also be useful for graduate students reviewing sociology basics for early graduate courses and later when preparing for comprehensive exams in sociological theory. -- Emily Kearns Each entry is written with keen insight and clarity, often locating concepts in relation to one another and to their origins in classical philosophy. The bottom line: Crossley's book offers valuable discussions that make it extremely useful for anyone interested in social theory. . . . Highly recommended. -- P. Kivisto * CHOICE *
