Social Construction: A Reader is a collection of classic and contemporary articles, representing the major viewpoints central to social constructionism. It provides the reader with an overview of the key empirical research ideas and papers written by an outstanding collection of international authors in each of the substantive areas of the field, including philosophical, social science, ethnography, cultural studies and feminist thought. These readings are bought together in one accessible volume and are organized thematically with editorial commentaries to provide an intellectual context and aid student learning. The Reader is comprised of seven parts:

– The Social Construction of the Real and the Good

– Constructing the Person: Culture and Critique

– Horizons of Inquiry

– The Relational Reconstruction of the Self

– Profusions of Practice

– Cultural Analysis

– Constructionism in Question

Social Construction: A Reader will be essential reading for students across the social sciences. It will be an invaluable resource, both used indepently and as complimentary to Kenneth J Gergen’s seminal text, An Invitation to Social Construction, also published by SAGE Publications.
