Synopsis: For over twenty years Charles Lemert has scoured the canon of social theory, pulling together long-established classics as well as engaging modern writing to create an essential collection of social theory from the nineteenth century to the present. In this heavily revised fifth edition, Lemert reevaluates the received canon and reasserts this iconic text's place in the standard curriculum.

Classic, essential texts from thinkers like Marx, Durkheim, and James remain; other key writers, like Dewey and Connell, are presented in a new light; and leading figures in the discussion of twenty-first-century society, such as Elijah Anderson and Bruno Latour, are anthologized here for the first time. In addition to classic and multicultural readings, the new fifth edition introduces a discussion of global social theory as well as important new and evolving topics like mobile technologies, the virtual realm, masculinities, and bare life. For the first time, timelines are included to visually present readings against the backdrop of significant events in social and world history. With more than 100 authors, thinkers, and scholars represented, the fifth edition of Social Theory is an essential component of any course on social theory.

From the Back Cover: "A rich, highly textured, historically sweeping, and strikingly inclusive collection." ?Jeffrey Alexander, Yale University

"Powerful and provocative . . . Social Theory is an essential guide through the complex contours of multicultural ideology and theory from the nineteenth century to the present.” ?Manning Marable, Pulitzer Prize winner for Malcom X

?The breadth, scope, and variety of this reader is truly unique. For nearly twenty years, I’ve kept up-to-date on contemporary social theory by using Lemert as a guide to complete articles and books worth reading.” ?Jerry Daday, Western Kentucky University

?Social Theory provides a distinctive opportunity to read primary source material across a wide range of theoretical, political, and historical contexts, yet is expansive enough to offer flexibility in how I teach from one semester to the next.” ?Anthony Hatch, Georgia State University

?This book is nothing short of a spiritual experience. The writings are wonderfully diverse, and Dr. Lemert’s essays are a vital and powerful supplement to the words of these transformative thinkers.” —Ben McKeown, sociology student

For over twenty years Charles Lemert has scoured the canon of social theory, pulling together long-established classics as well as engaging modern writing to create an essential collection of social theory from the nineteenth century to the present. In this heavily revised fifth edition, Lemert reevaluates the received canon and reasserts this iconic text’s place in the standard curriculum.

Classic, essential texts from thinkers like Marx and Du Bois remain; other key writers, like John Dewey and Raewyn Connell, are presented in a new light; and leading figures in the discussion of twenty-first-century society, such as Elijah Anderson, Bruno Latour, and Achille Mbembe, are anthologized here for the first time. In addition to classic and multicultural readings, the new fifth edition introduces a discussion of global social theory as well as important new and evolving topics like mobile technologies, the virtual realm, masculinities, and bare life. New in this edition, timelines are included to visually present readings against the backdrop of significant events in social and world history. With more than 100 authors, thinkers, and scholars represented, the fifth edition of Social Theory is an essential component of any social theory course.

Charles Lemert is University Professor and Andrus Professor of Social Theory Emeritus at Wesleyan University and Senior Fellow of the Center for Comparative Research at Yale University. He is the author and editor of many books, most recently Globalization: The Basics and Why Niebuhr Matters.
