Boudon provides a wide ranging critique of the existing theories of social change in sociology, documenting his ideas with empirical illustrations. He argues that social life is in a fundamental sense marked by disorder. Not only are there no laws of social life, but patterns of social change continually diverge from the outcome which social actors attempt to achieve.
