Micro Social Theory by Brian Roberts
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Micro social theory covers a rich tradition in sociological thinking and research that focuses on the self or actor and social interaction. It includes the work of the Chicago School, Garfinkel and Goffman, amongst others. This new title in the "Traditions in Social Theory" series traces the development of the tradition and assesses its contemporary importance. Throughout, the emphasis is on making theory intelligible, enabling Sociology students to broaden their knowledge of micro social theory and its application.
