about

In a systematic and comprehensive analysis of the relationship between sociology and cultural studies, Gregor McLennan lucidly guides us from central philosophical questions in the social sciences to new interpretations of such urgent contemporary questions as Eurocentrism, multiculturalism, and reflexivity. The author offers a range of closely linked arguments concerning the viability of the 'idea of sociology', the development of cultural studies, and the balance between positivity and reflexivity in setting the right kind of 'mood music' for progressive intellectual work.
GREGOR McLENNAN is Professor of Sociology at the University of Bristol, UK. He is the author of Marxism and the Methodologies of History, Marxism, Pluralism and Beyond, and Pluralism, and co-author of Exploring Society. He has also co-edited and contributed to several collections in social and political theory and cultural studies.
