Description - Teaching Yourself Social Theory by David Harris

This refreshing and accessible text demonstrates how social theory can be made into an intelligible discourse that touches upon key aspects of everyday life. The abstraction and formalism of much contemporary social theory is criticized as unnecessarily 'scholastic' for the beginner. David Harris maintains that the main problems in studying the subject are not intrinsic to social theory, but derive from how the subject is taught as a university discipline. Teach Yourself Social Theory uses non-specialist terms to introduce more complex themes, and incorporates a web site with questions and reading guides to some of the classic works.
