Fernandez examines the lives and ideas of sociologists who shaped the main contours of the discipline. Weber, Marx, Durkheim, and Simmel fashioned the early ideas and approaches of sociology, and their ideas are still central to the discipline. Veblen, Mead, Goffman, and Berger added crucial conceptual approaches; they also serve to underscore the length and breadth of Sociology as a science.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[M]appers of Society provides the reader with an excellent bibliography that can be helpful for not only the curious student or researcher, but also for the librarian in search of a comprehensive collection development tool. Although the book may be designated as a reference resource, its format and usability mitigate against this restrictive classification. This book should be located in the circulating collection so the reader can take it home and truly enjoy its brilliant ruminations. Fernandez's meditations on these men will inspire any reader to explore sociology further. Recommended for large public libraries and college libraries."-Reference & User Services Quarterly

?With a sharp sense of humor, Fernandez's book offers to readers insight into the minds of some of the sociological greats, along with encouragement to use those insights to understand and perhaps improve the contemporary world. This is one of those rare theory books that I believe students will actually enjoy reading, and because Fernandez is clearly excited about the promise of sociology, readers are likely to catch his enthusiasm and be more excited about sociology as well....[t]his book would be an excellent choice for social theory courses pitched at virtually any level.?-Teaching Sociology
