Theory and Society
Renewal and Critique in Social Theory
The journal Theory and Society publishes theoretically-informed analyses of social processes, providing a forum for an international community of scholars. It opens its pages to authors working at the frontiers of social analysis, regardless of discipline. The coverage ranges across a broad landscape, from prehistory to contemporary affairs, from treatments of individuals to nations to world culture, from discussions of theory to methodological critique, from the First World to Third World and the Global South. The effort is always to bring together theory, criticism and concrete observation.
