Review:

"I like the idea of a more inclusive sociological theory text. It's good to see the work of women and people of color integrated into this book....As we move beyond telling the story of a fairly homogeneous academic elite, we also begin to make social theory and theorizing more accessible to our increasingly diverse students." -- Robert E. L. Roberts

Put simply, although the theory instructor has the paramount responsibility of acquainting her students with major perspectives/concepts, the academic figures responsible for constructing them and the intellectual and social conditions under which they theorized, she needs a good deal of help. Adams and Sydie's "Sociological Theory" is one of those books that provide such prop-a good one for that.
