Social theory is open to many passing currents. Claims to originality tend to thrive and past achievements are often ignored. In Sociologiocal Theory: What Went Wrong? Mouzelis claims that "problems" currently being isolated are not really problems, and that "achievements" claimed are little more than pretensions. He argues that we have been premature to dismiss thinkers from the late 1950s and early 1960s and that we can build on their ideas to produce a more effective, more relevant social theory.
Written with precision and with clarity, Sociological Theory: What Went Wrong? is a compelling analysis of the central problems of sociological theory today and of the means to resolve them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Nicos Mouzselis is...known for his work in development studies as well as on sociological theory. This book is his critique of some key ideas and trends in a certain genre of sociological theory since the 1950s.... The commentary is informative, and the work could well serve as an introduction to these issues for students or others considering them for the first time."
-Contemporary Sociology
