Shelves: sociology The book covers an enormous amount of work and it familiarises the reader with the most important ideas associated with the three thinkers. Someone just getting to grips with the subject matter will appreciate the accessible language, but will probably be put off by the many flaws, most of them related to style.

The text often sets out to map the writings of an author by introducing some sort of classifying system, one that is supposed to help the reader make sense of the vast conceptual and theoretical apparatus that is analysed. Very welcome in itself, only that the classifying systems arrived at are not always relevant or clear-cut. A typical example: point 2 may be very similar to point 3, only slightly different from point 4, and basically the same as point 5, only worded differently.

You cannot escape the impression that this urge to systematize, indulged in at every occasion, is done only for the sake of appearing rigorous while not really being so at a closer look.

Also, you will often have the same point that was made excruciatingly clear in 3 or 4 places in a subchapter being reiterated in the next one as if it had never been mentioned before. See for example the idea that exchange value separates the commodity from its use value.

Many times a very simple idea will be endlessly repeated, each time paraphrased in a slightly different way. I do not see the benefit of recapitulating over and over some easy-to-understand point, often after only a few paragraphs. It feels like the author was mainly interested in filling space. After a while, you realise that there are whole pages that basically say nothing new or very little, and consist mostly of rearranged words.

Probably towards the same end of filling space, whole sentences are quoted several times in the text. These would be acceptable in a draft, but not in the published product and even less so in its second edition. I am also not very convinced by some of the interpretations Morrison makes, to put it mildly. Indeed, sometimes it seems as the author is bent on making the original text more confusing. I remember the first edition as a very comprehensive and accessible intro to the vast oeuvres of all the three thinkers.

So was this edition, obviously, but it also had problems. For some reason the basic rule of second editions is that they need to be thicker. Adding pages is an end in itself as Weber would say. This is especially bad in the case of Marx. The chapters lack a useful summary and end abruptly, but otherwise the systematic review is commendable.

In my view Durkheim gets the fairest hearing, but this might be personal bias. The glossary at the end is useful even for advanced academics, for quick reference. I hope the repetition problem is fixed in the forthcoming version. The new edition does not need new pages, but better coherence.

Altamente recomendable. This is an excellent book to understand the main authors of the modernity. I would only criticize that sometimes is a bit repetitive. What I like most was the way to explain the concepts. I found it very instructive.
