Elegantly written, ambitious in scope and meticulously clear in its exposition, Brock’s Welcome to Social Theory provides an engaging introduction to key currents in social thought that will prove indispensable to both newcomers and more established readers in this field.
The author has extensive experience teaching sociological theory to students new to the field.
This book does what more social theory books should do: it combines a clear and unfussy prose style with carefully selected graphic representations and images of key concepts and ideas. As such, it enables complex ideas to be made clear in ways that words alone often fail to do. I enjoyed very much reading about and ‘looking’ at the conceptual ideas this book sets forth’
Important book for the study of sociological theories. Current and well-founded
This is a great introduction to a range of social theory applicable to graphic design students applying theory to their practice. It is especially useful for introductions to intersectionality and post-colonial theory.
