An excellent introduction to the classical tradition in sociology - comprehensive yet accessible for new undergraduate students. I particularly like the boxes containing definitions of key concepts and the further resources to support student learning. (Dr Serena Bufton, School of Social Science & Law, Sheffield Hallam University). Written in a praised conversational tone with personal examples and bolstered with helpful pedagogical tools, Explorations in Classical Sociological Theory: Seeing the Social World introduces readers to the major classical theorists: Marx, Spencer, Durkheim, Weber, Simmel, Mead, Schutz, Martineau Gilman, Du Bois, and Parsons. These theorists were chosen for diversity as well as utility in introducing students to classical theory. Author Kenneth Allan focuses on the specific views of each theorist, rather than schools of thought, and highlights modernity and postmodernity to help readers understand how classical sociological theory applies to their lives.
