Description

An examination of the work of key figures and seminal institutions in the classical tradition and the agenda they provide for contemporary sociology.

The first part of the book examines the theories of: Karl Marx; Max Weber; Karl Mannheim; Georg Simmel; Emile Durkheim; and Talcott Parsons. The second part includes debates on the family, religion, the city, social stratification, generations and citizenship.
