Review:

"Crafting a sociological theory text that addresses complex and contested ideas in a sophisticated, yet genuinely engaging and accessible way is a tall order. As this new edition of Michele Dillon's book reveals, she has a remarkable gift for doing just that. Students will be well served by professors who adopt Introduction to Sociological Theory for their theory courses." ?Peter Kivisto, Augustana College and University of Turku

From the Back Cover:

The bestselling Introduction to Sociological Theory has now been extensively revised and updated for a much-anticipated second edition. Leading sociologist, Michele Dillon provides a comprehensive introduction to classical and contemporary sociological theory, whilst relating them to a range of topical issues and processes. Dillon expertly combines primary quotations with thorough discussion and tangible examples chosen from a wide range of societies.

The second edition features new chapters on the changing world economic and social order, and contains a stronger emphasis throughout on the applicability of sociological theory to social change in Asia. In demonstrating the applicability of theories, new examples included throughout the book relate to contemporary economic, social, and cultural changes and tensions in China, South Korea, and India, as well as to developments in other Asian countries.

Written in a clear and engaging style, the second edition of Introduction to Sociological Theory remains the most accessible textbook on/ overview of the topic available. Additional resources to support the book include are available at www.wiley.com/go/dillon. The website features multiple choice and essay questions, PowerPoint slides with multimedia links to carefully chosen content illustrative of sociological processes, a list of complementary primary readings, a quotation bank, and other background materials.
