Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A collection of accessible, primary source readings in contemporary and classical theory, representing a broad range of theoretical orientations shaping sociology today. Brief introductions frame each article in a larger context. Part I, on classical social theory, contains works by thinkers such as Marx and Durkheim, as well as voices outside the discipline and neglected voices. Part II looks at branches of contemporary theory including conflict theory, symbolic interactionism, and queer theory. This anthology features longer readings than many other anthologies. Kivisto is professor and chair of sociology at Augustana College. Lacks a subject index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
