Series: Sociology Re-Wired

This third edition of Social Theory Re-Wired is a significantly revised edition of this leading text and its unique web learning interactive programs that “allow us to go farther into theory and to build student skills than ever before,” according to many teachers. Vital political and social updates are reflected both in the text and the online supplements. “System updates” to each section offer an expanded set of contemporary theory readings that focus on the impacts of information/digital technologies on each of the text’s five big themes: 1) the Puzzles of Social Order, 2) the Social Consequences of Capitalism, 3) the Darkside of Modernity, 4) Subordinated/Alternative Knowledges, and 5) Self-Identity and Society.
