About the book:

Ian Craib compellingly shows the value of studying classic thinkers such as Marx, Weber, Durkheim, and Simmel alongside the more popular contemporary questions. Providing an account of the key ideas of classical social theory, Dr Craib establishes their relevance today, their enduring significance, and their contribution to understanding contemporary problems.

Written in a direct, personal style, Classical Social Theory's thematic structure helps the reader compare the theorists systematically, and the book-by-book approach pays close attention to each thinker's key texts, quoting the most important passages and analyzing them in a clear, straightforward way.

Other student-friendly features include:
* biographical details and an elementary overview of the work of Marx, Weber, Durkheim, and Simmel
* Dramatis Personae with brief details of the life and thought of other relevant thinkers
* Glossary covering important terms and phrases used in the text

Classical Social Theory is an indispensable guide to the key thinkers in Sociology for anyone new to the subject.
