Contributes a unifying paradigm to sociological theory that constructively integrates micro and macrosociological, subjective and objective, social scientific and humanistic perspectives. It synthesizes the European critical theory/phenomenological approach with the American radical tradition, and illuminates the internal tension in the discipline of sociology that is the result of the European struggle for world hegemony. It also contributes a relational comparison of the social institutions of modern life, and examines the work of some neglected sociologists such as Leo Frobenius and Henry George.
