This text introduces students to the lives, times, and ideas of twelve people who have had the greatest influence on the development of sociology. Each theorist is discussed in separate chapters, which are organized to demonstrate how social theory is the product of individuals responding to the issues and concerns of their times. The theorists are examined in light of their personal circumstances and the social and intellectual climate in which they lived; their ideas about society and their methodologies, and the significance of their work as perceived by subsequent generations.Every chapter in this new edition has been updated to incorporate new scholarship, especially those on Durkheim and Marx. Also, the Web Resources Appendix has been thoroughly updated.David Ashley is the author of 'Sociological Theory: Classical Statements (6th Edition)', published 2004 under ISBN 9780205381302 and ISBN 0205381308.
