Classical Sociological Theory

Cover
Pine Forge Press, 29.01.2002 - 360 Seiten
The popular Pine Forge Press textbook, Sociological Theory, has been broken into two volumes, to meet the needs of lecturers and students. This first volume, Classical Sociological Theory, covers the development of social thought up to the 1930s. The treatment of individual theories and theorists is balanced with the development of key themes and ideas about social life, including race, class and gender.
