By: Paul Atkinson (author)Hardback
1 - 2 weeks availability
Basil Bernstein is one of the most creative and influential of contemporary British sociologists, yet his work - especially that relating to language and social structure - is widely misunderstood and misrepresented. This book, first published in 1985, addresses the underlying themes and continuities in Bernstein's work and portrays him as a sociologist in the Durkheimian tradition. This reissue will be of particular value to students interested in the sociology of education, language and society, anthropological linguistics and communication studies.
