by Charles Lemert

For over twenty years Charles Lemert has scoured the canon of social theory, pulling together long-established classics as well as engaging modern writing to create an essential collection of social theory from the nineteenth century to the present. In this heavily revised fifth edition, Lemert reevaluates the received canon and reasserts this iconic text's place in the standard curriculum. Classic, essential texts from thinkers like Marx, Durkheim, and James remain; other key writers, like Dewey and Connell, are presented in a new light; and leading figures in the discussion of twenty-first-century society, such as Elijah Anderson and Bruno Latour, are anthologized here for the first time. In addition to classic and multicultural readings, the new fifth edition introduces a discussion of global social theory as well as important new and evolving topics like mobile technologies, the virtual realm, masculinities, and bare life. For the first time, timelines are included to visually present readings against the backdrop of significant events in social and world history. With more than 100 authors, thinkers, and scholars represented, the fifth edition of Social Theory is an essential component of any course on social theory.

Bought it as a textbook for class, and it became an interesting book to read in general. It's a collection of essays from the big names of sociology. It is a great book for anyone looking into taking social theory courses. Criminal justice majors have a quite a bit of these courses to go through.
Not letting me return the book and the book wasn't very good too
Bought it as a textbook for class, and it's really quite awesome. It's a collection of essays from the greats of sociology, really brings about a new understanding of the world.
Just what I needed
As expected
Its a textbook. Its not great, but you have to read it either way.
I actually do not like the book at all as a Social Theory textbook. I am actually using two previous sociology/philosophy books to draw on for my class. My professor isn't even having us read this book for homework but it is the required book. Maybe his brother wrote it? Anyways, the book showed up brand new so I highly recommend the seller.
I bought this book. It shipped on time, and it was brand new. I would recommend this book
