Most widely held works by C. Wright Mills
The sociological imagination by C. Wright Mills( Book )

98 editions published between 1959 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 3,710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, the author set forth his views on how social science should be pursued. The book took issue with the ascendant schools of sociology in the United States, calling for a humanist sociology connecting the social, personal, and historical dimensions of our lives. The author's view is a way of looking at the world that can see links between the apparently private problems of the individual and important social issues. This new edition contains an afterword by a current leading sociologist in which he considers the contributions the author made with his original work, and examines how his research relates to American society today
The power elite by C. Wright Mills( Book )

198 editions published between 1956 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 3,588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this classic of social science and social criticism, Columbia University sociologist C. Wright Mills examines and critiques the organization of power in the United States in the post-war era, calling attention to three interlocking groups of power--the military, corporate, and political elite--and exploring whether America is as democratic in practice as it is in theory
White collar; the American middle classes by C. Wright Mills( Book )

119 editions published between 1951 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 2,761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is considered a standard on the subject of the new middle class in twentieth-century America. This landmark volume demonstrates how the conditions and styles of middle class life, originating from elements of both the newer lower and upper classes, represent modern society as a whole. By examining white-collar life, the author aimed to learn something about what was becoming more typically American than the once-famous Western frontier character. He painted a picture instead of a society that had evolved into a business-based milieu, viewing America instead as a great salesroom, an enormous file, and a new universe of management

The politics of truth : selected writings of C. Wright Mills by C. Wright Mills( )

14 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Politics of Truth contains 23 out-of-print and hard-to-find writings which show Mills's growth from academic sociologist to an intellectual maestro in command of a mature style, a dissenter who sought to inspire the public to oppose the drift toward permanent war. Given the political deceptions of recent years, Mills's truth-telling is more relevant than ever. Seminal papers including "Letter to the New Left" appear alongside lesser known meditations such as "Are We Losing Our Sense of Belonging?" John Summers provides fresh insights in his introduction, which gives an overview of Mills's life and career
