About this product
- DescriptionThis accessible book introduces the story of 'social science', with coverage of history, politics, ecomics, sociology, psychology, anthropology, and geography. Key questions include: * How and why did the social sciences originate and differentiate? * How are they related to older traditions that have defined Western civilization? * What is the unique perspective or 'way of kwing' of each social science? * What are the challenges-and alternatives-to the social sciences as they stand in the twenty-first century? Eller explains the origin, evolution, methods, and the main figures, literature, concepts, and theories in each discipline. The chapters also feature a range of contemporary examples, with consideration given to how the disciplines address present-day issues.
