Professor Pens New Textbook

December 16, 2009

Introduction to Sociological Theory, by Michele Dillon

Michele Dillon, professor of sociology, has written a new textbook, “Introduction to Sociological Theory: Theorists, Concepts, and their Applicability to the Twenty-First Century.”

Combining carefully chosen primary quotes with extensive discussion and everyday illustrative examples, the book provides an in-depth introduction to classical and contemporary theory.

It uses a wide range of newspaper examples to illustrate the relevance to sociological theory; contains excerpts from theorists’ primary texts; includes chapter-specific glossaries of all theoretical concepts discussed in the book; includes short biographies and historical timelines of significant events that provide context to various theorists’ ideas; and incorporates a range of pedagogical features.

The supporting website includes multiple choice and essay questions, PowerPoint slides, a quotation bank, and other background materials.
