This is a revised edition of Margaret Archer's Culture and Agency (CUP, 1988), a seminal contribution to social theory and the case for the role of culture in sociological thought. Described as a timely and sophisticated treatment , the book showed that the problems of culture and agency and structure and agency could be solved using the same analytical framework. The revised edition contextualizes the argument in 1990s sociology and links it to Professor Archer's latest book, Realist Social Theory: The Morphogenetic Approach (CUP, 1995).
