9780198295723: On Sociology: Numbers, Narratives, and the Integration of Research and Theory

On Sociology brings together a collection of essays from the last ten years by one of the best-known and influential British sociologist, John H. Goldthorpe. The essays are concerned with the intellectual discovery of contemporary sociology. The collection begins with essays critical of various current tendencies in sociology and moves on to propose a new direction for the sociological mainstream. The essays combine the established strengths of quantitative sociology with recent developments in the theory of social action, especially rational action theory. The book then turns to specific examples of this style of sociology, particularly in the field of social stratification. The final essay takes up related issues in the history of sociology.

About the Author:

John H. Goldthorpe is at Nuffield College, Oxford.

Review:

`On Sociology is a path-breaking book...Goldthorpe's project has all the scope and reach of the postwar fuctionalist program of Parsons and Merton, but it is likely to be more successful precisely becuase it allows a substantial role for empirical scholarship and can therefore contain and
encompass the ongoing quantitative revolution...It is not, then, altogether implausible that the publication of On Sociology will come to be seen as a turning point in the history of the discipline.'
David Grusky and Matthew Di Carlo, Cornell University, European Sociological Review
