Sociological Thought: Beyond Eurocentric Theory is designed to provide students of sociology with an alternative vision of social theory. In an exciting and original introduction to the book, Abdo provides an innovative critique of the Eurocentric and male-oriented nature of conventional sociological textbooks, and provides us with a new approach to understanding the field. The horizons of social theory are expanded by the inclusion of a chapter by Rosa Luxemburg and a chapter by the fourteenth century Arab/North African scholar Ibn Khaldun.
