Overview

Conflict Sociology, first published in 1975, represented the most powerful and comprehensive statement of conflict theory of its time. Collins brought together the best features of the Marxian and Weberian conflict traditions and connected them to microsociological principles derived from the Durkheimian tradition and Erving Goffman. This new edition is a substantial update and abridgement of the original book. Sanderson has retained the core chapters on stratification; deference and demeanor; state, economy, and ideology; and wealth and social mobility. Each chapter has been updated by discussing new work produced both by Collins and other key scholars of conflict theory. Sanderson’s substantive afterword takes up Collins’s work since 1975 on educational systems, intellectual life, organizations, historical change, gender and family, and religion. The afterword also summarizes Collins’s latest forays into microsociological theorizing and attempts to show how Collins’s newer microsociology and his older macrosociology are connected.
