SmithWinner of the American Sociological Association's Career of Distinguished Scholarship Award (1999)Winner of the Jessie Bernard Award for Feminist Sociology (1993)In this collection of essays, sociologist Dorothy E. Smith develops a method for analyzing how women (and men) view contemporary society from specific gendered points of view. She shows how social relations - and the theories that describe them - must express the concrete historical and geographical details of everyday lives. A vital sociology from the standpoint of women, the volume is applicable to a variety of subjects, and will be especially useful in courses in sociological theory and methods.

Feminism and Sociological Theory by Ruth A. Wallace (Editor)What are the implications of contemporary feminism for sociological theory? In this volume, leading feminist researchers consider these implications, focusing on: the feminist critique and re-evaluation of existing theories; new concepts and areas of research; interdisciplinary linkages; and the creation of a new sociological paradigm. Contributors highlight the important feminist theoretical work which has remained outside of sociological theory, and argue for its inclusion into the mainstream. As such this book is a much needed contribution to the literature in sociological theory, and feminist studies.
