The Blackwell Dictionary of Modern Social Thought, 2d ed.
The Blackwell dictionary of modern social thought, 2d ed.
Ed. by William Outhwaite.
Many of the entries are devoted to particular bodies of thought that were influential in the 20th century, among them individual social sciences, philosophical schools, political doctrines, and distinctive styles of art and literature. In these cases, a long general entry is supplemented by other entries that elaborate specific aspects of the ideas and theories involved. Though the focus is on the 20th century, historical aspects are often considered, in many cases dealing with ideas of earlier centuries. Entry-specific reading lists are supplemented by a general bibliography. The 1993 first edition was titled The Blackwell Dictionary of Twentieth-Century Social Thought; this is a reprint of the 2003 second edition.
