Marx, Durkheim, Weber : Formations of Modern Social Thought Paperback



'This is an excellent introduction to classical social theory. For most students it is the only book on the subject that they will need. The expositions are clear and comprehensive, outlining with almost alarming clarity ideas which many of us have to struggle' - Alan Bryman, The Management Centre, University of Leicester This is a thoroughly revised, expanded version of the best selling student text in classical social theory.

The book provides an authoritative, accessible undergraduate guide to the three pivotal figures in the classical tradition. Readable and stimulating, the book explains the key ideas of these thinkers and situates them in their historical and philosophical contexts.

The student gains an immediate understanding of what is distinctive and relevant about these giants of sociology.

The book includes a glossary with over 150 entries. For a decade, the book has been required reading on undergraduate degree programmes.

This new edition, refines the material, extends the analysis and enhances our appreciation.

It is a nugget in its field.
