|Giddens, Anthony (b. 1938)|
British sociologist, who wrote extensively on social theory in the 1970's, attempting to create a unified theory of practice, which would bring together the work of e.g. Marx and methodological individualists such as Barth. Giddens's later work focuses on the problems of modernity, and is less technical. In the 1990's, Giddens became an advisor to British New Labour politicians.
