In this revised and updated second edition, leading Durkheim scholar Steven Lukes' new introduction builds upon Lewis Coser's original - which places the work in its intellectual and historical context and pinpoints its central ideas and arguments - by focusing on the text's significance for how we ought to think sociologically about some central problems that face us today. For example:
What does this text have to tell us about modernity and individualism? In what ways does it offer a distinctive critique of the ills of capitalism?
With helpful introductions and learning features this remains an indispensable companion for students of sociology.
