Classical Sociological Theory Summary


Classical Sociological Theory: A Reader by Ian McIntosh

This Reader brings together a generous selection of readings from the original texts of the three major classical sociological theorists: Karl Marx, Max Weber, Emile Durkheim. The readings are deliberately of a substantial length to allow students to gain a full understanding of the texts. Organised in a clear and accessible manner, each reading is introduced by an editorial commentary which explains the importance of the piece within the context of the theorist's other work. The Reader is designed to be both a comprehensive introduction and a sourcebook for all students and teachers of social theory.
