Zusatztext A very welcome text ... in many ways more integrated than most theory texts ... I highly recommend this book as a supplement to theory courses. As a broad overview! it will be a most useful addition to the syllabus. Further! the text is exceedingly well written ... The tone of Four Sociological Traditions is highly optimistic and! I feel! helps to foster excitement for the subject. This is a fresh and much needed text.
