Both classical and contemporary social theorists have created a range of frameworks to formulate and develop concepts of social structure. Focusing on the work of the key theorists, Emile Durkheim, Karl Marx, Max Weber, Talcott Parsons and Louis Althusser, Society and its Metaphors maps the linguistic basis of different theories of social structure.

About the Author:

José López is Lecturer in Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Nottingham.

Review:

"A quite outstanding achievement, Society and its Metaphors engages thoroughly with the implications of poststructuralist strictures on explanatory theorizing, and with the heightened reflexivity about language now pervasive among social theorists. Yet the book still remains committed to an explanatory project of social theorizing, one more cautious and circumspect, but none the less challenging and ambitious. The indispensable but problematic role of metaphor is the thread which binds together a remarkably integrated work."—Ted Benton, University of Essex

"Lopez, approaches social theory as a discursive practice, and his rhetorical analysis of the writings of Durkheim, Marx, Weber, Parsons, and Althusser constitutes a valuable example of the insights that such an approach can provide. Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." -Choice, 2/04

“The Continuum Complete International Encyclopedia of Sexuality provides a comprehensive examination of human sexuality, broadly defined, as it is constituted in various countries and cultures on the basis of empirical information gathered by experts who are native to or knowledgeable about those countries and cultures.... What is most remarkable about The Continuum Complete International Encyclopedia of Sexuality is its masterful portrayal of the interpersonal and sociocultural elements of human sexuality as they appear in an extraordinarily broad sample of humanity.... Two hundred seventy recognized experts on six continents, representing a wide array of academic disciplines, produced this unparalleled repository of scholarship on human sexuality... In sum, The Continuum Complete International Encyclopedia of Sexuality is a monumental reference book that makes a lasting contribution to the description and understanding of contemporary human sexuality and relationships as manifested around the world. It is both informative and entertaining and is an essential resource for scientists and practitioners from various social science disciplines. It will inform and expand the worldviews of readers with its always rich and occasionally provocative presentation of the economic, historical, political, religious, social, and cultural meanings in which sexual attitudes and behavior are constituted. Simply put, it is a tour de force. I hope that the editors, authors, and commentators will remain actively engaged in this volume in the coming years. Their continued commitment will ensure the addition of new chapters, organizational refinements, and information updates of unequalled quality.” –PsychCRITIQUES (Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books), 50.4, 1/26/05
