Classical and Contemporary Sociological Theory is a "hybrid" between a core textbook and a primary source reader. This book builds on the authors′ Sociological Theory in the Classical Era and Sociological Theory in the Contemporary Era, to combine the major writings of sociology′s core classical and contemporary theorists with an historical and theoretical framework for understanding them. It provides not just a biographical and theoretical summary of each theorist/reading, but, in addition, an overarching scaffolding which students can use to examine, compare, and contrast each theorists′ major themes and concepts. No other theory text combines such "student-friendly" explanation and analysis with original theoretical works.

Review:

"...the readers will be quite appealing to both students and instructors - much better than what is currently available." -- Julie Harms Cannon "I am very impressed by the coverage in this reader. I think the selections are excellent for both the classical and contemporary time periods." -- James P. Marshall "I am thrilled by the hybrid approach. I think the authors' approach is right on - they are right: we do need a reader which has solid primary source material but is embedded in historical and theoretical discussion and explication. I think the text/reader combination is highly attractive - especially for professors teaching at big public institutions I think this approach will be happily received and widely appreciated." -- Phil Zuckerman "The format of this text is exceptional, and on that the discipline sorely needs. The authors present thorough biographical and historical backgrounds relevant to each theorist and her/his theories. I believe this is essential to learning and understanding theory...the authors use examples that will aid students in shaping their ability to see theory in their lives." -- Chris Ponticelli
