Aftermath: Thieves World, Book 10 by Robert Lynn Asprin

Edles and Appelrouths new book is a major contribution for those striving to help students understand the essential place of theory in the sociological enterprise.  It skillfully demonstrates the contemporary relevance of classical theory, elucidates the complex interplay of empirical research and sociological theory, and makes crystal clear that good theory must always be more than idle speculation.  The authors are to be commended for how they interweave biographical sketches, background influences, core ideas, and theoretical orientations, on the one hand, with their inclusion of pivotal primary sources.  This book will likely be template that future texts in theory will try to emulate.                                                                         - Edward Lehman, New York University   Sociological Theory in the Classical Era is an ambitious and successful attempt to revitalize the teaching of sociological theory. The scope of primary readings is wide and inclusive. Their introductory materials are clear and helpful. Their new organizing framework will allow students to clarify the similarities and differences among the wealth of classical readings.                                                                               - Jeffrey Alexander, Yale University   This is one of the best classical theory texts Ive come across.  Most undergraduates are unprepared for a serious encounter with the writings of the classical theorists.  Rather than respond to this problem with a textbook full of pat summaries, Edles and Appelrouth ingeniously combine the best of the reader and textbook formats.  Their exegeses of the major themes and arguments of each theorist -- written with a rare combination of theoretical acumen, clarity, and the sure-footed use of examples -- will help students make sense of the well chosen excerpts.  The book thus serves a double purpose: not only will it expose students to the ideas of the classical theorists; it will also help them learn what it really means to read.
