SAGE Publications London. 1 A Map of the Terrain: The Organisation of the Book The Main Story: Key Dualisms in Sociology This book provides an overview of the major issues in social theory but the organisation of the discussion is unlike that found in most textbooks.

This concerns how the encounters of everyday life and individual behaviour influence, and are influenced by, the wider social environment in which we live.
