Knowledge Evolution and Societal Transformations: Action Theory to Solve Adaptive Problems.
By Jerald Hage
Foreword by Michael Quinn Patton
Action theory provides career possibilities for sociologists and examples provide ways of reducing educational, income, and political inequality. While it doesn't specifically deal with the virus crisis or policing, the model provides solutions to both of these problems.
The book integrates sociological theory with economic and political science theory, representing 60 years of Hage's work. The theory is grounded with comparative research in the United States and in Western Europe over 100 years. This book updates Marx, Weber, and Durkheim, making them more relevant to contemporary problems. For example, Chapter two explains why there are Trump voters.
