Book Description

This set traces the development of sociological theories of social class in Europe and North America in the first half of the twentieth century, defining and highlighting the role it plays in the divisions within industrial society of the time.
The history of class theory is traced from Marxist sociology through studies of class cultures to analyses of the psychology of class in American sociology, thus documenting some of the major social traditions of this century.
Sociological theories included in this set come from key sociologists such as W.F. Ogburn, T. Adorno and Talcott Parsons.
