Classical and Contemporary Sociological Theory is a #xE2;#xAC;Shybrid#xE2;#xAC; between a core textbook and a secondary reader. This book, along with others in the same series, combines the major writings of sociology#xE2;#xAC;"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 an overarching scaffolding which students can use to examine, compare, and contrast each theorists#xE2;#xAC;" major themes and concepts. No other theory text combines such #xE2;#xAC;Sstudent-friendly#xE2;#xAC; explanation and analysis with original theoretical works.
