Stanford University Press, 1987. Let me begin with the better book. Giddens and Turner clearly intended to produce a high-level textbook summarizing the variety of theoretical approaches comprising social theory today. I have two major problems with their book as well as some selective praise for and criticism of particular chapters.

Another main aspect of social identity theory is its explanation that social behavior falls on a continuum that ranges from interpersonal behavior to intergroup behavior.
