The organization of this popular social theory reader, which pairs classical articles with contemporary theoretical and empirical studies, highlights the historical flow of social theory and demonstrates how disagreements and confrontations shape theory over time. Written in clear, down-to-earth language, the introductions to each selection link theorists to one another, illustrating how theoretical traditions are not rigidly separate but are always in conversation, addressing and challenging each other. Volume I: From Classical to Modern Theory includes an enhanced selection of readings by classical theorists, a newly-translated selection from Machiavelli, and re-organized chapters to better capture historical-contextual periods.
