“A. Javier Treviño’s erudition, thoughtfulness, and flair for pedagogy shine through in every aspect of this impressive, well-crafted volume: in its overall architecture, which neatly encompasses both historical chronology and thematics; in its judicious selection of texts, which span more than two centuries of the sociological tradition; in its careful textual abridgements, which allow essential arguments and insights to be easily accessible; and in its clear, elegant, and well-informed essays at the start of each section.”
“This comprehensive selection makes a powerful case for the importance of the sociological imagination. Treviño shows how theorists of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries explored the ideas of community, power, culture, race, and gender…[and] how systems, networks, and information flows are seen as driving a transition from modernity to an emerging late modern or postmodern society.”
—John Scott, University of Essex (UK) and University of Copenhagen
"Treviño has succeeded in the quite difficult task of producing an anthology that includes all the major authors and currents of sociological theory. His introductions to the readings present them clearly and concisely.”
—Sandro Segre, University of Genoa, Italy
This book is fantastic. The idea of putting together pieces of classic sociological text in an order that make sense was quite genius. Since I believe there is only one way of thinking sociologically, I have always insisted that classical thinkers are more similar to each other than different. One may think that Marx and Weber are talking about two different things from two distinct points of view, however reading this books chapter in order, you would find out that they are quite similar.
