In this substantially revised and enlarged second edition of a classic text that has been used throughout the world in numerous translations, Tom Bottomore reconsiders élite theory in the light of more recent studies.

In a new concluding chapter, Professor Bottomore considers the prospect, as humanity approaches the millenium

Karl Marx by Richard P Appelbaum( Book )

27 editions published between 1956 and 1981 in 4 languages and held by 973 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Isaiah Berlin's intellectual biography of Karl Marx has long been recognized as one of the best concise accounts of the life and thought of the man who had, in Berlin's words, a more "direct, deliberate, and powerful" influence on mankind than any other nineteenth-century thinker. A brilliantly lucid work of synthesis and exposition, the book introduces Marx's ideas and sets them in their context, explains why they were revolutionary in political and intellectual terms, and paints a memorable portrait of Marx's dramatic life and outsized personality. Berlin takes readers through Marx's years of adolescent rebellion and post-university communist agitation, the personal high point of the 1848 revolutions, and his later years of exile, political frustration, and intellectual effort. Critical yet sympathetic, Berlin's account illuminates a life without reproducing a legend. New features of this thoroughly revised edition include references for Berlin's quotations and allusions, Terrell Carver's assessment of the distinctiveness of Berlin's book, and a revised guide to further reading
Political sociology by T. B Bottomore( Book )

51 editions published between 1979 and 1993 in 5 languages and held by 929 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development of democracy, the class struggles within capitalist societies, the establishment of socialist political systems, the growth of colonial empires in the 19th century and the subsequent revolts against them in the form of national liberation movements, the world wars and revolutions of the 20th century - these are the subjects discussed, mainly from a Marxist perspective but without ignoring either the criticisms of Marxism or the alternatives to it

Sociology as social criticism by T. B Bottomore( Book )

43 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1975, this collection of essays embodies a conception of sociological thought as a critical analysis of social theories and doctrines, of social institutions and political regimes, of recent social movements. They deal, in particular, with some conservative versions of sociology and with attempts to develop more radical theories; they extend the author's previous writings on classes, elites and politics; and they analyze some of the problems of socialism in the late twentieth century. There is a close unity of theme throughout the book in its critical attempt to formulate new intellectual bases for future radical and egalitarian politics. It is written with that quiet wisdom and impressive command of sources which readers have come to associate with Professor Bottomore's work

28 editions published between 1984 and 1993 in English and Chinese and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theories of modern capitalism by T. B Bottomore( Book )

32 editions published between 1985 and 2010 in English and Chinese and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1985, Theories of Modern Capitalism provides a succinct study of Marxist and non-Marxist theories of Capitalism, its recent development, and the prospects of a€transition to socialism. The study begins with a critical examination and comparison of four major theories of capitalism, in the works of Marx, Weber, Schumpeter and Hayek. This is followed by an analysis of the most recent phase of capitalism which has been conceptualised by Marxists thinkers in various ways as 'organised capitalism'', 'state monopoly', or 'late capitalism'. Finally, Bottomore considers the question of a€'transition to socialism' in the diverse interpretations which have been offered by Marxists on one side, and by Weber, Schumpeter and Hayek on the other.€ Theories of Modern Capitalism will be valuable in a wide range of courses in social and political theory, and will also have an appeal to a broader readership concerned with issues of social and economic policy

Max Weber and Karl Marx by Karl Löwith( Book )

19 editions published between 1981 and 1993 in English and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lowith's study of Max Weber and Karl Marx is a key text in modern interpretations of the theme of alienation in Marxist theory and rationalisation in Weber's sociology. It remains the best short student introduction to the differences and comparisons between these essential thinkers. This new edition includes a Preface by Professor Bryan S. Turner which demonstrates the relevance of the book for contemporary sociology

Marx's concept of man by Erich Fromm( Book )

42 editions published between 1961 and 2014 in English and German and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marx's Concept of Man is Fromm's view of Marx. It stresses his humanist philosophy and challenges both Soviet distortion and Western ignorance of Marx's early thought. The discovery of Marx's Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts (which is included in this edition), together with Fromm's interpretation, established a new approach to Marx as a humanist and moralist, and served as a formative influence on the New Left."--Jacket
The Frankfurt School and its critics by T. B Bottomore( Book )

26 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Institute of Social Research, from which the Frankfurt School developed, was founded in the early years of the Weimar Republic. It survived the Nazi era in exile, to become one of the most important centres of social theory in the postwar era. Early members of the school, such as Adorno, Horkheimer and Marcuse, developed a form of Marxist theory known as Critical Theory, which has been hugely influential in the study of class, politics, culture and ideology. The work of more recent members, and in particular Habermas, has received wide attention throughout Europe and North America." "Tom Bottomore's study takes a controversial look at the contributions of the Frankfurt School to modern sociology, examining several issues not previously discussed elsewhere. It discusses the neglect of history and political economy by the critical theorists, and considers the relationship of the later Frankfurt School to the radical movements of the 1960s and the 1980s. His critical analysis makes the school's writers accessible, through an assessment of their work and an exploration of the relationship of Critical Theory to other forms of sociological thought, especially positivism and structuralism."--Jacket
