The art of sociological argument.


The art of sociological argument.

Crow, Graham.

Palgrave Macmillan


208 pages




This introductory text examines the ways in which sociological arguments are constructed and presented. Individual chapters consider the work of eight major sociologists in different theoretical traditions from functionalism to feminism, including Karl Marx, Max Weber, Michel Foucault, and Ann Oakley. Crow (sociology, U. of Southampton) contrasts the argumentative styles of these thinkers, encouraging readers to imagine themselves as participants in their sociological debates.
