A Critical Review of Social Sciences: Contemporary Issues, a sequel to A Critical Review of Social Sciences: Theory and Practice, published in 2018, critically investigates the increasing abundance of methods, models, and paradigms varying from society to society with particular reference to Turkey.

In all 34 well-researched articles, authored by the acknowledged specialists and organised by the acclaimed section editors, the issues chronicled in the critique are fragmented into eight segments, viz. business administration, economics, labour economics, social policy and education, health studies, public administration and environment, women studies and legal studies.

With a systematic attempt to analyse the scope, range and purpose while developing critical examination of the issues, concerns and common fallacies, the discourse is intended as a systematic compilation of socioeconomic, political and cultural circumstances which set the main directions for societies to develop. In the way towards sustainable and successful development, the discussions of each chapter reflect a variety of perspectives ranging from legal, organisational, gender-based, economic and social dimensions.

The treatise, with its consistent and analytical approach, is an invaluable companion for the policymakers, academia, researchers, students and a wide range of general readers who are interested in relevant fields of social science in general and Turkey, particularly in respect of contemporary emerging issues both from local and global perspectives.
