Book Description:

In authoritative & accessible prose, this book outlines new directions of classical theory in a late modern or postmodern world. The original text explores the contemporary relevance of classical sociological theory.

From the Back Cover:

In this original text Kenneth Tucker explores the contemporary relevance of classical sociological theory. He examines the work of Marx, Weber and Durkheim through the lens of new theoretical issues, such as the role of Empire, the problem of cultural differences and the possibilities of democracy implicit in each theorist's perspective.

While Tucker effectively summarizes each theorist's major ideas, he is most concerned with contemporary issues: what should be retained and what should be jettisoned from each theorist in order to discern today's world in light of a growing awareness of cultural identities and social differences. This leads to a discussion of how the sociological tradition can be understood in new ways, and includes the contributions of other theorists such as Freud, Simmel, Nietzsche, Perkins Gilman and Du Bois. In authoritative and accessible prose, Tucker outlines new directions of classical theory in a late modern or postmodern world.
