Globalisation and Market Governance
Political sociology has traditionally focused on relationships between state and society. Recent theoretical and empirical changes challenge this approach. Post-structuralism, neo-Marxism and feminism have given rise to wider definitions of power, politics and social identities. Globalisation, the shift from government to governance and the rise of "new social movements" have transformed the social terrain of political struggle. Examines contemporary debates in political sociology.
