    One thought on “Classical Social Theory”

    1. در این کتاب، یان کرایپ به طرزی قانع‌کننده ارزش بررسی اندیشمندان کلاسیکی چون مارکس، وبر، دورکیم و زیمل را همراه با پرسش‌های عام‌تر و امروزی‌تر جامعه‌شناسی نشان می‌دهد.ساختار موضوعی کتاب، با شیوۀ نگارش شخصی و روشن آن، به خواننده کمک می‌کند به طرزی منظم به مقایسۀ نظریه پرد [...]

    2. I suppose this is a 'textbook' that is intended to be read by students - and for that purpose Ian Craib has done an outstanding job.

    3. Craib is a humorous and somewhat unconventional writer. However, the book is filled with an immense amount of sociological information from the major pioneers. Sometimes the details can be a little droll, other times dull. The strongest point of this book is the extraordinary references and future reading suggestions. Recommend for those who want to expand their knowledge on Marx, Weber, Durkheim and Simmel.
