This highly regarded anthology of primary readings in sociological theory covers the major theorists and schools from classic to contemporary, modernist, and postmodernist, in a chronological organization. Its comprehensive coverage and excellent introductions make this book appealing as a main text for professors who want to encourage students to read and interpret original sources, or as a supplement for those who use a traditional main text.

A comprehensive general introduction as well as introductions to each of the chapters provide biographical background and historical context to make the readings accessible and more meaningful to students.
Its chronological, rather than topical, approach coordinates well with George Ritzer's sociological theory texts, as well as with other texts in social theory.
James Farganis was born and raised in New York City, attended its public schools and received his B.A. from Brooklyn College and Ph.D. from Cornell University. He has taught sociology at several colleges and universities. He is now affiliated with the New School for Social Research.
