Opposing mainstream social science, usually hostile towards coercion and the state, the author sees social order as based on self regulation and the allegiance of the individual to the dominant culture. He points out the flaws in what is chiefly a Lockean-Parsonian tradition and then proposes that the Hobbesian view be included in social analysis.
