Thoroughly revised and expanded, this bestselling student text provides an authoritative, accessible guide to the three pivotal figures in the classical tradition.

Readable and stimulating, and including a glossary of concepts containing over 150 entries, the book explains the key ideas of these thinkers and situates them in their historical and philosophical contexts. It provides the student with an immediate understanding of what is distinctive and relevant about these giants of sociology.

For a decade, Marx, Dukheim, Weber has offered the best overall road map to the works of classical sociology and been required reading on undergraduate degree programmes. His new edition both refines the material, and extends the analysis. It will be invaluable to students of sociology, social theory and politics.

`This is an excellent introduction to classical social theory. For most students it is the only book on the subject that they will need. The expositions are clear and comprehensive, outlining with almost alarming clarity ideas which many of us have to struggle'
