From the Back Cover:

This comprehensive collection of classical sociological theory is a definitive guide to the roots of sociology. The volume begins with the precursors who developed the modern idea of society – Marx, Durkheim, and Weber – and continues with the early sociologists whose works were powerfully influential - Mead, Simmel, Freud, and Du Bois. The book concludes with the major works and theoretical perspectives of the mid-twentieth century, including those of Adorno, Marcuse, Parsons, and Merton.

As a whole, the Reader traces the evolution of social science from its undisciplined beginnings to current guideposts and reference points in contemporary sociological debate. Editorial introductions put the readings into historical and intellectual perspective, making this an authoritative and compact survey of the most representative works of classical social theory. Classical Sociological Theory, in conjunction with its complement, Contemporary Sociological Theory, offers readers a complete overview of sociological theory.
