Social Theory (Trial)
This trial will end on 31 October 2010
Social Theory (Alexander Street Press) is a new undertaking to provide comprehensive coverage of major social thinkers together with seminal texts from lesser figures. For many writers, the project represents the first availability of a major scholarly edition of their collected works. Extensive licensing allows readers to see both the original works and translations, searchable together in a single online collection for the first time. Essential for study in the areas of politics, economics, history, psychology, anthropology, religion, and literature, the works of many important thinkers in sociology have remained inaccessible until now.
The project contains more than 145,000 pages, with well over half of the materials in copyright. The collection includes the works of Max Weber, Karl Marx, Jürgen Habermas, Robert Merton, George Herbert Mead, Auguste Comte, Jean Baudrillard, Georg Hegel, Herbert Spencer, Antonio Gramsci, Mary Wollstonecraft, Alexis de Tocqueville, Harriet Martineau, Georg Simmel, Emile Durkheim, Anthony Giddons, Simone de Beauvoir, Norbert Elias, Michel Foucault, Peirre Bourdieu, Theodor Adorno, and thousands more. The collection includes both large textual works as well as journal articles, the latter dating back far enough to explore how social theory has evolved from its beginning.
