9780333793770: Structuration Theory

This important text argues for a 'strong' notion of structuration theory in contrast to the seminal but more abstract and relatively under-developed project represented by Anthony Giddens's writings. Emphasis on the duality of structure is placed at the centre of the tradition. It is argued that the distinctive power of structuration theory lies in its potential to critically investigate a specific range of in situ questions. Structuration Theory produces a synthesis that draws on Giddens's work, on other versions of the structuration problematic, and on key empirical uses of the approach. The final chapters make use of extended case examples to illustrate the critical power of strong structuration.

'Social scientists have long needed a book that constructively revises and extends Anthony Giddens' structuration theory in response to the criticisms and uses it has generated across the world since its articulation between 1976 and 1984. In providing exactly that, Rob Stones has achieved something of exceptional significance while writing with great clarity and engaging style' - Professor Chris Bryant, Salford University, UK
