C Wright Mills

Three Volume Set
Edited by:


September 2004 | 1 168 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
C.Wright Mills (1917-63) was one of the great sociologists and leading public intellectuals of the last century. His contribution to the sociology of power elites, industrial relations, bureaucracy, social structure and personality, reformist and revolutionary politics and the sociological imagination are seminal.

These three volumes, edited by one of America's most influential sociologists and cultural commentators, provides an unparalleled resource for understanding the intellectual relevance of Mill's writings. Mill's engagement with contemporary issues and his sociological vision emerge powerfully. The challenge he offers to sociologists is reassessed and reaffirmed.

This is a landmark collection which provides a timely and masterful critical assessment of Mills's contribution.
