Language: English . Brand New Book. Neofunctionalism and After brings together for the first time in one volume all of Alexander s writings on neofunctionalism, the present volume also contains two chapters written especially for this publication. The first, From Functionalism to Neofunctionalism: Creating a Position in the Field of Social Theory , is an autobiographical reconstruction of the origins of this movement. The other, Action, Culture, and Civil Society , is an ambitious theoretical argument in which Alexander asserts that the internal contradictions of neofunctionalism inevitably lead to a new movement of theoretical reconstruction that goes beyond it.

Synopsis : One of America?s leading sociological theorists, Alexander coined the term "neofunctionalism" a decade ago.
"The unique contribution of Jeffrey Alexander has been to develop a creative bridge between the significant components of the classical legacy and innovative advances in modern theory. In his new collection on neofunctionalism he advances the debate about Parsons and functionalism beyond the conventional platitudes about functionalist conservatism into contemporary debates about civil society, theory construction and cultural analysis. Neofunctionalism and After is a suble, thoughtful introduction to modern sociology, and in a period of nationalist rivalry, provides a global bridge between the European and North American traditions."
