This book examines the continuing importance of Durkheim's methodology. The wide-ranging chapters cover such issues as the use of statistics, explanation of suicide, anomie and religion and the morality of suicide. It will be of vital interest to any serious scholar of Durkheim's thought and to the sociologist looking for a fresh methodological perspective.

Die Debatten über den Zusammenhang von „Organisation und Geschlecht“ erleben seit den 1970er Jahren auch im deutschsprachigen Raum einen bemerkenswerten Aufschwung. So werden immer mehr Organisationstypen, Hochschulen, Sportvereine oder Unternehmen und Organisationseinheiten wie Personalabteilungen, darauf hin analysiert, welche Rolle das Geschlecht der Beschäftigten im Alltag der Organisationen spielt und welche unterschiedlichen Erscheinungsformen die Herstellungsprozesse von Geschlechterdifferenzen haben. Eine zentrale theoretische Frage ist dabei, ob Organisationen grundlegend als geschlechtsneutral zu analysieren sind oder eher als durch Geschlecht strukturierte soziale Gebilde betrachtet werden müssen. Das Buch führt in die Dynamik des Themenkomplexes ein.

This book is a hybrid of text and readings, providing both original, major writings of sociology's key classical theorists and a theoretical and historical framework, written by Edles/Applerouth, with which to better understand the readings. This is a major difference from the traditiional reader which can leave students unmotivated when readings are thrown at them one after another with no interpretive guidance or analytical framework. Features/Benefits: - Text plus readings in a "hybrid form". The text will provides the interpretive and analytical guidance necessary to interpret the readings. It includes a 30 page introduction (Ch.1) , 8 - 14 page introductions in each chapter, 1 - 2 page article introductions, and a 10 -15 page conclusion at the end of the book. - 'Theoretical Orientation Diagrams' and 'Core Concepts Diagrams' provide students a meanse to fit the theorist under study into the broader universe of social theory. - 'Significant Others' boxes provide information and biographies on theorists who may have followed and derived much of their own perspective from the major theorists featured in each chapter. - Discussion questions at the ends of chapters. New to this Edition: - At least 7 new 'Significant Others' boxes. - Each chapter updated with new examples. - New readings added to Weber, Marx, and Durkheim chapters. - New chronological order for readings where possible (where not possible - i.e. it does not fit the logical thematic to do so there will be an explanation in the introduction as to why the readings are ordered the way they are).

A concise, yet surprisingly comprehensive theory text, given the range of ideas, historical context, and theorists discussed. Unlike other books of the type, Classical Sociological Theory focuses on how the pivotal theories contributed not only to the development of the field, but also to the evolution of ideas concerning social life.

W. E. B. Du Bois was a political and literary giant of the 20th century, publishing over twenty books and thousands of essays and articles throughout his life. In The Social Theory of W. E. B. Du Bois, editor Phil Zuckerman assembles Du Bois's work from a wide variety of sources, including articles Du Bois published in newspapers, speeches he delivered, selections from well-known classics such as The Souls of Black Folk and Darkwater, and lesser-known, hard-to-find material written by this revolutionary social theorist. This book offers an excellent introduction to the sociological theory of one of the 20th century's intellectual beacons.
