Abstract

It’s a fair while now since sociology has been politically fashionable, yet, paradoxically, the eighties have been a decade which has cried out for the special wisdom that social scientists can provide. The collapse of work, riots in the cities, famine in the Third World, the retreat of the unions, the changing structure of the family — all these things have made an important difference to the way in which we interpret the world.
