Role

Professor of Sociology 

Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research)

I have been at Plymouth University since 2008, having previously been Professor of Sociology at Essex University since 1994. Before that, I was Professor and Head of Department at the University of Leicester and I have previously taught at the University of Strathclyde. Until 2005 I was an Adjunct Professor in the Sosiologisk Institutt at the University of Bergen. I am Editor of the European Societies, the journal of the European Sociological Association. I have been an active member of the British Sociological Association since 1970 and have been Newsletter editor, Secretary, Treasurer, Chairperson, and President. I am currently an Honorary Vice-President. I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA), a Fellow of the British Academy (FBA), and an academician of the Academy of Learned Society in the Social Sciences (AcSS).

Additional information

My research and teaching interests are in the areas of social stratification, business organisation and sociological theory, but I have also published on social research methods. My main publications include Corporations, Classes and Capitalism (1985), A Matter of Record: Documentary Sources in Social Research (1990), Who Rules Britain? (1991), Social Network Analysis (Second Edition, 2000), Poverty and Wealth (1994), Sociological Theory (1995), Stratification and Power (1996), and Corporate Business and Capitalist Classes (1997), and Power (2001). I recently took over as editor for the third edition of the Oxford Dictionary of Sociology (2005). My latest book is Social Theory: Central Issues in Sociology, an overview of historical and contemporary debates.

 In 2006 a Third Edition of the textbook Sociology (jointly written with James Fulcher) appeared. There is a web site dedicated to this book, with teaching and learning links for students and lecturers. During 2006 three new collections appeared in the Routledge Key Guides series: Sociology: The Key Concepts, Fifty Key Sociologists: The Formative Thinkers, and Fifty Key Sociologists: The Contemporary Thinkers.

 My research interests are in social stratification, economic power, and elites, social network analysis, and social theory. I am working on a treatise on social theory and a study of sociological pioneers Victor Branford and Patrick Geddes, early advocates of the Third Way. Some research materials on the Branford project are available on the project website.
