Bach | HönigEuropasoziologie

This handbook is the first to depict the empirical and theoretical problems in German-speaking European sociology in their multifaceted entirety, while identifying and discussing controversial and unresolved issues. In doing so, it collates the lemmas of relevant concrete problems found in the main areas of “the formation of institutions and institutional policy”, “territorial restructuring”, “social structure and social policy”, “transnational interrelationships” and “social theoretical perspectives” as contributions on the current state of European sociology.

The book presents each of the key theoretical approaches and concepts, relevant empirical findings and the most significant controversies in specific fields concisely, and discusses their potential for innovation and future challenges with care. In particular, it also offers both those not directly involved in sociology and academic laypeople a competent and up-to-date overview of the body of knowledge and the state of debate in this subject due to its reference work features.
