With one of the foremost authorities on sociological theory as lead author, this best-selling text gives readers a comprehensive overview of the major classical theorists and contemporary schools of sociological thought. Spanning the history of sociological theory from its inception to the latest theoretical developments, it integrates key theories with biographical sketches of theorists, placing readings in context and helping students understand the original works of classical authors as well as compare and contrast the newest substantive theories.

The thoroughly updated sixth edition reflects current debates in sociology and includes new sections on Actor-Network theory, neo-Marxian theories of space, and more!

The latter texts, as well as this one, have been translated into a number of languages.
