Most widely held works by C. Wright Mills
The sociological imagination by C. Wright Mills ( Book )
116 editions published between 1959 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,539 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 )
133 editions published between 1956 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published in 1956, this text is widely regarded as a contemporary classic of social science and social criticism. The author examines and critiques the organization of power in the United States, calling attention to three firmly interlocked prongs of power: the military, corporate, and political elite. This text can be read as an account of what was taking place in America at the time it was written, but its underlying question of whether America is as democratic in practice as it is in theory continues to matter very much today. What this text informed readers of in 1956 was how much the organization of power in America had changed during their lifetimes; Alan Wolfe's afterword to this new edition discusses how much more has changed since then. Wolfe sorts out what is helpful in this book and which of Mill's predictions have not come to bear, laying out the radical changes in American capitalism, from intense global competition and the collapse of communism to rapid technological transformations and ever changing consumer tastes

White collar; the American middle classes by C. Wright Mills ( Book )
97 editions published between 1951 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 2,808 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
