Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"Professor Coser’s evident skill for epitomizing complex ideas without trivializing them enables him to cut deep below the surface to their assumptions. As a result, this exposition of classical sociological thought is critical in tone, comprehensive in scope, and conscientious in its attention to detail. I know of no other book that so thoroughly and so compactly sets out the essentials of this wide range of classical theory." — Robert K. Merton, from the Foreword
