Looking at the description that Chuck posted a while ago....
" Lots of Vygotsky and Activity theory, of course, along with phenomenology, pragmatism, structurational sociology, interactionism, language, writing studies, etc."
...the books (2 vols) look great for a graduate course, perhaps interdisciplinary. But for an undergrad course that is one in a series on "basic processes in psychology" (yes, the phrase contains many dubious implications) I don't think they would work.
