Praise for the First Edition: `Totally reliable... the authors have produced a book urgently needed by all those charged with introducing students to the classics... quite indispensable' - Times Higher Education Supplement This is a fully updated and expanded new edition of the successful undergraduate text. Providing a lucid examination of the pivotal theories of Marx, Durkheim and Weber, the authors submit that these figures have decisively shaped the discipline. They show how the classical apparatus is in use, even though it is being directed in new ways in response to the changing character of society. Written with the needs of undergraduates in mind, the text is essential reading for students in sociology and social theory.

Our understanding of Late Antiquity can be transformed by the non-dogmatic application of social theory to more traditional evidence when studying major social conflicts in the Eastern Roman Empire, not least under the Emperor Justinian (527-565). Social Conflict in the Age of Justinian explores a range of often violent conflicts across the whole empire - on the land, in religion, and in sport - during this pivotal period in European history. Drawing on both sociology and social psychology, and on his experience as a senior British Civil Servant dealing with violent political conflicts in Northern Ireland and elsewhere, Bell shows that such conflicts were a basic feature of the overwhelmingly agricultural political economy of the empire. These conflicts were reflected at the ideological level and lead to intense persecution of intellectuals and Pagans as an ever more robust Christian ideological hegemony was established. In challenging the loyalties of all social classes, they also increased the vulnerability of an emperor and his allies. The need to legitimise the emperor, through an increasingly sacralised monarchy, and to build a loyal constituency, consequently remained a top priority for Justinian, even if his repeated efforts to unite the churches failed.

في كتاب سرقة التاريخ يبني جاك غودي على عمله السابق الخاص به ليوسع إلى مدى أبعد نقدَه المؤثر تأثيراً شديداً والموجه إلى ما يرى أنه انحيازات مركزية أوروبية، أو غربية، متفشية، تنحاز إليها كثير جداً من الكتابات التاريخية الغربية، و«السرقة» الناتجة عن ذلك التي قام بها الغرب لإنجازات الثقافات الأخرى في اختراع (وبشكل ملحوظ) الديمقراطية، والرأسمالية، والفردية، والحب. وكتاب سرقة التاريخ يناقش عدداً من المنظرين بالتفصيل، ومن جملتهم ماركس، وويبر، ونوربرت إلياس. ويشتبك بإعجاب نقدي مع مؤرخين غربيين من أمثال فيرناند برودل، وموسى فينلي، وبيري أندرسون. وتثار أسئلة عديدة عن المناهج المطبقة في هذه المناقشات. ويقترح الأستاذ الدكتور غودي تطبيق منهجية مقارنة جديدة من أجل تحليل التفاعل بين الثقافات المتعددة، منهجية تعطي أساساً أكثر حنكة بكثير من أجل تقييم النتائج التاريخية المتشعبة، وتحل محل الخلافات البسيطة القديمة العهد بين الشرق وبين الغرب. وسوف يقرأ كتاب سرقة التاريخ جمهور واسع من المؤرخين، وعلماء الإنسان، والمنظرين الاجتماعيين. جاك غودي: واحد من أبرز علماء علم الإنسان في العالم، وهو الأستاذ الدكتور الفخري لعلم الإنسان الاجتماعي في جامعة كيمبردج والزميل في كلية سينت جون.
