DESCRIPTION Karl Marx probably had more influence on the political course of the last century than any other social thinker. There are many different kinds of Marxism, and the Twentieth Century saw two huge Marxist states in total opposition to one another. In the West, Marxism has never presented a revolutionary threat to the established order, though it has taken root as the major theoretical critique of capitalist society in intellectual circles, and new interpretations of Marx's thought appear each year. Peter Worsley discusses all these major varieties of Marxism, distinguishing between those ideas which remain valid, those which are contestable, and those which should now be discarded. Rather than treating Marxism purely as a philosophy in the abstract, he concentrates upon the uses to which Marxism has been put and emphasises the connections between the theoretical debates and political struggles in the real world.

About the Book :- It has been decades since a truly new introduction to sociology has appeared—let alone one from two leading sociologists at the cutting edge of theory and research. Alexander and Thompson’s Contemporary Introduction to Sociology is such a text—the first that takes its lead from the cultural turn in social science and how it transforms the recent practice of sociology. Jargon-free, the text reflects the idioms and interests of contemporary American life and global social issues. It invites students to come to terms with their lives within the current world transition—a combustible leap from modern to postmodern life. It shows how culture is central to understanding many world problems as it challenges readers to confront the risks and potentialities of a postmodern era in which the futures of both the physical and social environment seem uncertain. Contents :- List of Boxes, Tables, and Figures Preface Part One: What is Sociology Chapter 1: Sociological Stories and Key Concepts Chapter 2: Sociological Methods Part Two: Meanings and Media Chapter 3: Cultural Structures Chapter 4: Media and Communication Part Three: Personal Worlds and Identity Chapter 5: Socialization and the Life Cycle Chapter 6: Sexuality Chapter 7: Marriage and the Family Part Four: Inequalities and Identities Chapter 8: Inequality Chapter 9: Gender Chapter 10: Race and Ethnicity Chapter 11: Crime and Deviance Part Five: Institutions Chapter 12: Work and the Economy Chapter 13: Education Chapter 14: Health and Medicine Chapter 15: Religion Part Six: Politics, Globalization, and Social Change Chapter 16: Urbanism and Population Chapter 17: Politics, Publics, and the State Chapter 18: Social Change, Collective Action, and Social Movements Bibliography Index Credits. About the Authors :- Jeffrey C. Alexander is the Lillian Chavenson Saden Professor of Sociology at Yale University, where he is co-director of the Center for Cultural Sociology. Among his many influential books is The Civic Sphere (Oxford University Press, 2006). He is also co-editor of the Yale Cultural Sociology Series (Paradigm Publishers).

What is it that police and policing actually do? What are the effects? And how are these effects mediated and experienced by different people at different times and in different contexts? Examining these questions, the contributors in this volume draw attention to the centrality of police and policing to the project of governance and the experience of being human in the contemporary world. They seek to make sense of and counteract the contemporary fetishization of police by problematizing their taken-for-granted existence and understanding their impact on contemporary human life. To this end, this volume provides a preliminary step in the establishment of an anthropology of police and policing.
