    Description

    his is a comprehensive text on sociological theory that discusses classical and contemporary theory. Arranged chronologically, it spans the history of sociological theory from its inception to the present. Key theories are integrated with biographical and autobiographical sketches of the lives of theorists to place readings in their personal and historical context for students. The fifth edition has been thoroughly updated and revised to include a number of sections on new developments in the field, such as theories of consumption and the new means of consumption, multiculturalism, and criticisms and applications of postmodernist and post-post modernism.

    The fifth edition continues to present modern sociological theory in the clear, unbiased writing style Ritzer’s readers have come to expect. All theories and concepts are thoroughly explained so students emerge with a solid understanding of the subject. All of the major modern schools of thought are covered, as are the key works and concepts associated with each.
