Edited by Peter Kivisto, this acclaimed collection of accessible primary source readings enables students to experience "firsthand" a wide range of perspectives that are shaping current sociological theory. Now in its fifth edition, Social Theory: Roots and Branches covers both classical theory (the roots) and contemporary theory (the branches) and shows how they are linked. Part One features work from such well-known classical theorists as Marx, Durkheim, Weber, and Simmel. It also presents selections by theorists outside of the discipline and from writers who are often overlooked in competing collections, including W. E. B. Du Bois, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and Harriet Martineau. Part Two offers readings that illustrate major contemporary theoretical approaches, ending with a section on cutting-edge directions in theoretical discourse. Now featuring a revised and expanded introductory chapter, this fifth edition offers seventeen new readings, including eight by theorists who are new to this collection.

About the Author:


Peter Kivisto is Richard A. Swanson Professor of Social Thought and Chair of Sociology, Anthropology, and Social Welfare at Augustana College and the Finland Distinguished Professor at the University of Turku, Finland.

Review:


"Social Theory provides the best overview of theory for undergraduate students. It is an intelligent text, and the coverage is excellent, more comprehensive than competing texts. It provides the broadest coverage of the classical theorists and contemporary theorists in one text and in their own words."--Barbara Arrighi, Northern Kentucky University
