Number 8 in the series. First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: The challenges of learning and teaching theory in the social sciences have been a subject of concern and debate since these subjects first emerged as a part of the higher education canon. However, in recent years, far reaching changes inside and outside the university have compounded such concerns in the minds of both students and teachers as higher education is re-organised within the logic of neo-liberalism. The authors in this volume discuss these contemporary contexts and reflect upon the difficulties and opportunities that arise in the classroom and beyond. This monograph enables authors from several nations the United Kingdom, United States, New Zealand and South Africa with a shared concern about the state of the university at present and the challenges that this offers for them and their students, to consider how engagement with social theory can help develop the kinds of critical evaluation skills that students will need in the world they enter after graduation. The book therefore represents essential reading for anyone considering how to encourage students and lecturers to consider the relevance of learning and teaching social theory for their appreciation of the world today.
