Constructing Social Research Objects is the third volume on theoretically driven methodology in the social sciences edited by Hakon Leiulfsrud and Peter Sohlberg. This essential new volume explains how to identify sociological research objects, and explores the art of living theory. Theoretical concepts such as social structure, the Global South, social bonds, organizations and management are examined and developed by a broad range of the discipline's most influential authors. The methodological chapters-including critical notes on sociology and the uses of statistics, the value of thought experiments in sociology, how to research subjects in time and space, and the academic 'star war' between Pierre Bourdieu and Dorothy E. Smith-offer indispensable insights for researchers and students interested in theoretical construction work in the social sciences. Contributors are: Goeran Ahrne, Michela Betta, Harriet Bjerrum Nielsen, Michael Burawoy, Raju Das, David Fasenfest, Raimund Hasse, Johs Hjellbrekke, Hakon Leiulfsrud, Emil A. Royrvik, John Scott, Peter Sohlberg, Karin Widerberg and Richard Swedberg.
