Allem Krisengerede zum Trotz hat die Soziologie in den letzten Jahren eine ungemeine Produktivität entfaltet. Gerade auch auf dem Gebiet der allgemeinen Theoriebildung sind eine Vielzahl von Innovationen und Weiterentwicklungen zu beobachten. Hierdurch hat das Spektrum soziologischer Grundlagentheorien nicht nur eine beträchtliche Erweiterung, sondern auch bemerkenswerte Umstellungen erfahren. Das "Handbuch Soziologische Theorien" gibt einen Überblick über die differenzierte und weit verzweigte soziologische Theorienlandschaft der Gegenwart. In mehr als zwanzig Einzelbeiträgen werden die international derzeit wichtigsten Theorieangebote, angefangen bei der Aktor-Netzwerk-Theorie über Feministische Theorien und Praxistheorien bis hin zur Verstehenden Soziologie, dargestellt und diskutiert. Die gut lesbaren Beiträge führen in die Prämissen und begrifflichen Ausgangspunkte der einzelnen Theorieansätze ein, zeichnen in komprimierter Form ihre konzeptionellen Ausrichtungen und zentralen Argumentationslinien nach, diskutieren Einwände der Kritiker sowie Entgegnungen ihrer Protagonisten und positionieren die Ansätze im internationalen Theoriediskurs. Das Handbuch Soziologische Theorien besticht durch die Breite der getroffenen Theorienauswahl, seine inhaltliche Ausgestaltung sowie durch die Qualität seiner Einzelbeiträge.
