Summary
"Society & Culture is a commanding assessment of the promise of twenty-first century sociology. This tour de force provides the most complete advocacy of sociology after the cultural turn." "This book presents sociology analytically as the study of solidarity, distinct from economics (the study of scarcity), politics (the study of violence), and from cultural studies. The authors contend that the correct materialist base for sociological study is the body, and from this a number of issues, such as the vulnerability of the body, the frailty of the natural environment, and belonging and conflict in society, are articulated which raise a set of universal questions that can revitalize sociology." "Throughout, Turner and Rojek maintain that the classical tradition is a living tradition. Their comparative and historical examination of social institutions also provides an overview of contemporary sociological theory. Acknowledging the incomplete character of the social processes of modernity, they provide a detailed critical survey of the principal social theories that offer solutions to the challenges of modernism. This book will be required reading for all students of contemporary sociology and social theory."--Jacket
