About the Book

One of the most noteworthy and popular Sociology books of all time, The McDonaldization of Society 6 demonstrates the power of the sociological imagination to today's readers in a way that few books have by linking theory to contemporary pop culture examples. This Sixth Edition includes a new concluding chapter “The DeMcDonaldization Society?” that examines recent phenomena like Web 2.0 and its relationship to the McDonaldization thesis.
