About this title

Synopsis:

In this now classic text, Collins and Makowsky explore the lives and ideas of the social thinkers who have shaped and continue to forge traditions in sociology. Focusing on the great names in the field, they weave biographical and conceptual details into a tapestry of the history of social thought of the 19th and 20th centuries. Written in a narrative style that is accessible, engaging, and exciting, this book is an excellent supplement for courses in social/sociological theory, the history of social thought, the history of sociology, and introduction to sociology.
