Critics of society; radical thought in North America by Tom Bottomore( Book )

62 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1967, this essay in the interpretation of radical social thought deals mainly with the radical theorists rather than the doctrines of social and political movements, but makes an exception in an important discussion of the new radicalism of the 1960s. The author's main concern is to lay bare the connections between intellectual dissent and theories of society, and in so doing to explore the neglected subject of the heritage of American radical thinking. Readers of this book will not only emerge enlightened by Professor Bottomore's impressive knowledge of American radical thought, but with a greatly increased understanding of contemporary American history. He ends with the question of whether the new radicalism can find a firmer basis than the student movement or the negro revolt; can produce an ideology both responsive to the doubts and complexities of our time and capable of directing action to plausible ends
Sociology as social criticism by T. B Bottomore( )

33 editions published between 1974 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,682 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
The philosophy of money by Georg Simmel( Book )

35 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first complete English translation of the revised edition (1907) of Georg Simmel's seminal work Philosophie des Geldes, which was first published in 1900. It has been a neglected work, partly because it, and Simmel's work as a whole, is not easily compartmentalized and has equal relevance for both philosophers and social scientists. Max Weber described Simmel as a 'sociologist and theorist of the money economy,' and contemporaries compared with the work in importance with Durkheim's Division of Labour in Society, and, in part, with Marx's Capital..." - Book Jacket

Marx's concept of man by Erich Fromm( )

26 editions published between 1961 and 2013 in English and German and held by 1,363 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

Theories of modern capitalism by Thomas B Bottomore( Book )

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

The Frankfurt School and its critics by Thomas Burton Bottomore( )

34 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 806 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
