Synopsis

Giddens's analysis of the writings of Marx, Durkheim and Weber has become the classic text for any student seeking to understand the three thinkers who established the basic framework of contemporary sociology. The first three sections of the book, based on close textual examination of the original sources, contain separate treatments of each writer. The author demonstrates the internal coherence of their respective contributions to social theory. The concluding section discusses the principal ways in which Marx can be compared with the other two authors, and discusses misconceptions of some conventional views on the subject.

Format: Taschenbuch
I'm quite surprised this hasn't been reviewed yet; it's a wonderful book. Likely not for undergrads, Giddens is able to tie together in novel ways some of the key concepts that connect the writings of Marx, Weber and Durkheim. A good deal of the book summarizes the key writings of each author-- which is useful in itself-- and supports much of the summary material with compelling quotes and citations of both the author in question, as well as others who have done secondary analyses. Giddens also devotes a few chapters to analyzing the three authors in comparison, and spends a good deal of time teasing out differences between the three that were not, for me at least, apparent right away. In other words, a solid and original analysis. Not five stars because there was less on similarities of thought between the authors than I would have liked to have seen (and no explicit comparative analysis of Weber and Durkheim, only Marx vis-a-vis the other two), but this is probably due to the fact that Marx, Weber and Durkheim diverge in so many fundamental ways. Nevertheless, truly a must read for those who want to begin to get a grip on classical western social theory in a more sophisticated fashion than what most textbooks (which this is not) might have to offer. Get it, because if it's this old and still in print in the academic world, there's a reason for it...

Great Book! 20. Januar 2001
Von mike cerneant - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Well, to sort of disagree with the previous review, I feel that this book is great for Undergrads! I, myself had the opportunity to read this book in a social theory class and have since relied upon Giddens excellent analysis of these theorists! It really helped me grasp the detailed (and often times confusing) ideas and theories of the classical theorists. After reading the book, I was able to more fully understand the actual works of these individuals. I use this book as reference guide to refer back to what Marx, Durkheim and Max Weber said.

Great Book for Sociology Theory Students 4. August 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Giddens outdid himself for sure! He definitely knew that me and my friends would use this book in our Sociology theory assignment as supplemental reading to aid out paper. Although I did not read this book from cover to cover, it found the Durkheim commentary very useful. Two of my friends also used the Weber and Marx sections, and thanked me so much for purchasing the book. Giddens gets straight to the point, explaning himself very clearly to the reader . . . which is often difficult in theory. The best way to use the book is to look up your subject of interest in the index while you have your primary source in front of you. Enjoy it and save it . . . it'll come in handy een after you're done with your theory class.

Seeing master through master 26. Juni 2002
Von Suckwoo Lee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Giddens is the most well-known British social scientist after Keynes and one of three masters in sociology with Bourdieu and Habermas. This book has been widely used as textbook in classes on the history of sociology, while his more recent book, ¡®Introduction to Sociology¡¯ ahs occupied most introductory classes of sociology.
1. Giddens might be the best and deepest understander of three father of sociology. The prestige and appeal of his structuration theory might be rooted in that mastery. Before proposed the outline of structuration theory in ¡®New Rules of Sociological Method¡¯, he spent about ten years in digging into three founders: Marx, Weber, and Durkheim. This book is the fruit of that effort.
Unlike usual textbook, this book us not simple introduction to classical theorists. The need to read classics lies in the problem sociology poses to itself: ¡®what is the modernity?¡¯ Whereas other sister disciplines pose somewhat narrower problems-capitalism for economics, democracy for political sciences- sociology questions the modernity itself. That¡¯s the very problem three fathers posed over a century ago. But still we question the same problem in the way they set. So we should always return to classics when meeting the fundamental problem.
2. The style of this book is clear, easy-to-follow, and jargon-free enough to be used in undergraduate introductory class. But it doesn¡¯t mean that there is no depth in this book. Giddens argues that thoughts of Weber and Durkheim should be understood as the reaction to Marx. His emphasis is convincing and offers a good standpoint to look up three fathers as a whole. Such a point is invaluable to beginners. Moreover, his interpretations are opposite to conventional wisdom, with solid grounds. He contends that there is no discontinuity between young Marx and late Marx, against humanist views like Frankfurt school¡¯s and structuralist exposition like Althusser¡¯s; there is no inconsistency I Weber. He was always a radical neo-Kantian; the relationship of Weber and Marx should be seen as creative tension rather than antagonism; Durkheim¡¯s point lies in not primarily in ¡®the problem of order¡¯ but in the changing nature of order in the context of social development.

While no doubt dated and superseded by more recent interpretations, this is still a good book to start with... 9. Mai 2014
Von Paul W. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
For budding social theorists (if there are still people who are interested in such pursuits), or anyone with an interest in the thinkers under discussion (Durkheim, Marx and Weber,) this is a very useful and worthwhile introduction. After decades, I finally read the book, which I owned in college, but did not read.
I especially enjoyed Giddens' treatment of Durkheim. He takes some pains to elaborate on Durkheim's concept of the "collective conscience" which if I remember correctly, is not really the correct translation of a French phrase that may not really have a great cognate in English. Giddens also goes into some depth about the importance of early religion for Durkheim, and how it figured into the writing of his book "The Elementary Forms of the Religious Life." I don't remember an especially detailed treatment of "Suicide," but it's possible that it has slipped my memory (I read the book about a year ago.)
The discussion of Marx spent a lot of time on the concepts of "alienation," "surplus-value" and "means of production" vs. "mode of production." One of Giddens' aims was to rescue the concept of "alienation" from what were, to him, misconceived interpretations of the term.
As for Weber, Giddens discussion of the worker's question in Prussia was good, although I'm not sure if it was the best treatment of that important topic in Weber scholarship that I've ever read. Wolfgang Mommsen's treatment, in his book on Max Weber's politics, trans. by Michael Steinberg -- a ponderous book if ever there was one -- may nonetheless have covered that topic better. (Of course, it's been even longer since I've read that book.)
Discussions of Weber's general outlook, types of authority, modernity were adequate, but nothing to write home about. Somewhere near the beginning of the book -- the intro.? -- Giddens comes right out and tells the reader of his theoretical biases or orientation, and I think that orientation plays itself out in the writing of the book.
Again, this book is not the latest scholarship, but it is still useful.
