Description

This book is a critical assessment of the work of classical sociologists such as Marx, Weber, and Durkheim and the work of Mead, Goffman, Parsons, and Foucault. The relationship between modernity and sociology is critically evaluated. It is argued that sociology arose out of modernity and its theories of society can be understood in this context. The book concludes with a critical view of new theories of identity which have developed out of post-structuralism and postmodernism.
