Sociological Theory in the Classical Era: Text and Readings (BOK)
Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
This book is a hybrid of text and readings, providing both original, major writings of sociology's key classical theorists and a theoretical and historical framework, written by Edles/Applerouth, with which to better understand the readings. This is a major difference from the traditional reader which can leave students unmotivated when readings are thrown at them one after another with no interpretive guidance or analytical framework. Features/Benefits include: text plus readings in a 'hybrid form'. The text will provides the interpretive and analytical guidance necessary to interpret the readings. It includes a 30 page introduction (Chapter 1) , 8-14 page introductions in each chapter, 1-2 page article introductions, and a 10-15 page conclusion at the end of the book; 'Theoretical Orientation Diagrams' and 'Core Concepts Diagrams' provide students a means to fit the theorist under study into the broader universe of social theory; 'Significant Others' boxes provide information and biographies on theorists who may have followed and derived much of their own perspective from the major theorists featured in each chapter; and, discussion questions at the ends of chapters. New to this Edition: at least 7 new 'Significant Others' boxes; each chapter updated with new examples; new readings added to Weber, Marx, and Durkheim chapters; and, new chronological order for readings where possible (where not possible - i.e. it does not fit the logical thematic to do so there will be an explanation in the introduction as to why the readings are ordered the way they are).
