Zito has put together a powerful sociological and historical primer targeted to novices and the knowledgeable alike. Are the writers of texts sociologists or historians? How do you judge? How do you combine sociology and history in one text? Are there guidelines for writing a socio-historical work? This book answers these questions and others through a dynamic analysis of two current socio-historical texts. Dr. Zito surgically applies two standards: one sociological which lucidly defines and uses such concepts as ideal type, power or 'macht,' and social structure. Second, the historical approach defines and uses concepts such as periodization, historical imagination and the role of mathematical probability in the outcome of historical events. Zito's final chapter illuminates the strengths and weaknesses of both studies and arrives at revelatory conclusions.
