Beyond Equilibrium Theory is a fundamentally new interpretation of social reality that introduces theories of social formation and transformation, for micro- and macro-analysis of action systems and social movements. Equilibrium and conflict are viewed as societal variants rather than as ideal or natural states. Classical theorists are placed within a common theoretical framework, in an analysis of social order and social change as separate continua. Multiple path models trace changing patterns of partnering and power sharing. Hypotheses are tested with field-collected survey data, regression analysis of higher-order interactions, and comparisons of means adjusted for other effects. Researchers are provided with detailed methods of integrating theory and research, including nonlinear models and new logics of causality.
