A journey in comparative historical sociology


Date Published: 2016
Thorns, David

This article tracks my own biography as a way of showing how my sociological studies have developed over the 40 years I have been a professional sociologist. Working in the UK for 8 years and then in New Zealand has reinforced for me the importance of a comparative and historical Perspective. The value of this is explored though my work on: suburban and community research; the sociology of housing and residential mobility; social inequality and class formation; comparative urban research; restructuring and change within advanced capitalist societies; urban sustainability; comparative welfare state policy analysis and globalisation and urban change.
