    When first published, "The Sociological Tradition "had a profound and positive impact on sociology, providing a rich sense of intellectual background to a relatively new discipline in America. Robert Nisbet describes what he considers the golden age of sociology, 1830-1900, outlining five major themes of nineteenth-century sociologists: community, authority, status, the sacred, and alienation. Nisbet focuses on sociology's European heritage, delineating the arguments of Tocqueville, Marx, Durkheim, and Weber in new and ... Show more

Reviews of The sociological tradition

Grows better with age

by Cella on May 15, 2010

This book was originally published in 1966 and so you would think it would not be relevant for today. However, I have spent the last 3 months reviewing this text and have found it very insightful. The only criticism I have is that you have to read slowly and carefully with a dictionary by your side because Nisbet wrote this at a time when big, PhD words were encouraged and he's very good at using a higher level of vocabulary than we currently see in even textbooks.
