Edited by Peter J. Kivisto, this acclaimed collection of accessible primary source readings enables students to experience "firsthand" a wide range of perspectives that are shaping current sociological theory. Now in its sixth edition, Social Theory: Roots and Branches covers both classical theory (the roots) and contemporary theory (the branches) and shows how they are linked. Part One features work from such well-known classical theorists as Marx,
Durkheim, Weber, and Simmel. It also presents selections by theorists outside of the discipline and from writers who are often overlooked in competing collections, including W. E. B. Du Bois, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and Harriet Martineau. Part Two offers readings that illustrate major contemporary theoretical
approaches, ending with a section on cutting-edge directions in theoretical discourse.

I really like the introductions in Social Theory: Roots & Branches. Kivisto outlines key points and contextualizes each reading. I love the approach. * Tiffany Taylor, Kent State University
* I have not found another reader that even comes close in terms of covering the pivotal writings in both classical and contemporary theorizing. This book sets the standard for the genre. * Bradley Nash, Jr., Appalachian State University * I use Social Theory: Roots & Branches precisely for what is implied by its title: attention to both foundations and off-shoots. The coverage is wide and deep, and the layout and presentation are effective in their logical sequencing and brief and concise introductory material. I also find the questions at the end of each section useful in framing my lectures and in-class discussions. * Miriam Konrad, Georgia State University
