Summary Exploring analytical sociology as an approach for explaining important social facts such as network structures, patterns of residential segregation, typical beliefs, and cultural tastes, this text brings together some of the most prominent analytical sociologists. In four parts, the volume describes the foundations of analytical sociology; discusses the role of action and interaction in explaining diverse social processes such as emotions and beliefs; looks at the macroscopic social dynamics brought on by the activation of the cog-and-wheel mechanisms; and asks how analytic sociology relates to other fields and approaches such as game theory, analytic ethnography, and historical sociology.
