Inhaltsangabe: What are the possibilities for a different sociology - a sociology concerned with the immediate experience of everyday life; a sociology of human possibilities which takes up themes that have been excluded from the discipline - desire, memory, time and the body? Ann Game explores these possibilities, and attempts to redefine the discipline of sociology in the light of contemprary cultural and feminist theory. She juxtaposes analyses of theoretical texts (including Foucault, Bergson, Irigaray, Benjamin, Freud, Hegel, Lacan, Cixous and Barthes) against "texts" from daily life. The "social texts" examined include boss-secretary relations, Bondi beach, English heritage and the Cronenberg film "Dead Ringers". Ann Game unsettles sociological assumptions, and shows that a deconstructive strategy is just as relevant in (and valuable to) sociology as in literary, cultural or philosophical studies.
Über den Autor: Ann Game is a lecturer in Sociology at the University of New South Wales

Anbieterinformationen: We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
