Book Giveaway - British Social Theory: Recovering Lost Traditions before 1950

British Social Theory cover image.This month we have five copies of British Social Theory: Recovering Lost Traditions before 1950 by John Scott from the University of Exeter ready to giveaway.

As a unique contribution to discussions of social theory, this book counters the argument that no social theory was ever produced in Britain before the late twentieth century. Reviewing a period of 300 years from the seventeenth century to the mid-twentieth century, it sets out a number of innovative strands in theory that culminated in powerful contributions in the classical period of sociology. The book discusses how these traditions of theory were lost and forgotten and sets out why they are important today.

If you are interested in receiving one of these free copies, please email BSA Membership with your name and postal address and we will pick five winners at random in July. Please note that you must be a BSA member to enter this book draw. If you aren't a member and would like to find out how to become one and see what other benefits are available to you, please visit the Membership section on the BSA website.
