Classical and Contemporary Sociological Theory, Third Edition is a text/reader that introduces students to the ideas and writings of key theorists from sociology’s 19th century founders through the present. Authors Scott Appelrouth and Laura Desfor Edles combine original texts, edited for classroom use, with extensive framing discussions that provide crucial biographical, historical, and theoretical context for readings. The book also provides an overarching scaffolding that students can use to examine, compare, and contrast each theorist’s major themes and concepts. This unique format, combined with frequent use of photos, tables, and diagrams, makes Classical and Contemporary Sociological Theory in the Contemporary Era a lively, engaging, and “student-friendly” introduction to the world of theory.
