Phil Bartle


Web references change: some come and go. That means not all of these will still exist by the time you get to them.   You are invited to contribute by looking for further web references and sharing them.

The following references include several papers written by me.

In the Dead Sociologists' web site, you will find many of the topics covered by the text book. Look for them by name of each classical sociologist.
