Edited By Richardson, Diane
Previous owner's signature on ffep.Little attention has traditionally been given to theorising heterosexuality. Heterosexuality tends to be taken-for-granted, as something that is 'natural' and 'normal'. Theorising Heterosexuality questions this assumption and demonstrates how much of our understanding of ourselves and the social worlds we inhabit is based upon unquestioned assumptions about the nature of heterosexuality. * In what ways does heterosexuality encode and structure everyday life? * How does heterosexuality shape our sense of identity? * What is the nature of heterosexual desire? * What is the relationship between heterosexuality and feminism? In addition to addressing these questions, the contributors to Theorising Heterosexuality provide a critical examination of recent debates about heterosexuality, in particular within postmodern, feminist and Queer theory. Well written in a clear and lively style, this book brings together leading authors in the field, who represent a variety of differing approaches and viewpoints. Heterosexuality is theorised in terms of its institutionalisation within society and culture, as practice and as identity. The result is an impressive and exciting collection, whose insights invite a radical rethinking of many of the concepts we use to theorise social relations. Theorising Heterosexuality will be of interest to a wide range of students in the social sciences and humanities, especially in: sociology, cultural studies, lesbian and gay studies, social psychology and women's studies.204pp

Watson, Tony J.
In the third edition of this successful and popular text, Tony Watson explains how the discipline of sociology can contribute to our wider understanding of the variety of work practices and institutions which exist in modern societies. He travels the full journey from the founding ideas of the discipline to postmodernist departures and develops all the main areas: occupations; organizations; work experience; industrial relations; industrial society and theory. The book ends with a thoroughly revised chapter covering the major questions of how work experience and global patterns of relationships are changing now and may change in the future. Thoroughly revised and presented in a new and accessible format, this third edition of Sociology, Work and Industry will prove an indispensable guide to a massive and complex field. 426pp. N.B. Reading crease to spine. Label residue to rear cover.
