    schema:description "This book offers a new analysis of the works of the three authors who have contributed most to establishing the basic framework of contemporary sociology. Recent scholarship has illuminated important aspects of the ideas of Marx, Durkheim and Weber, but has also given rise to a variety of divergent interpretations of their writings. One of the main objectives of Capitalism and Modern Social Theory is to dispel some of the obscurities and misunderstandings which have resulted. The first three sections of the book, based on close textual examination of the original sources, contain separate treatments of each writer. Mr. Giddens is particularly concerned to demonstrate the internal coherence of their respective contributions to social theory. The concluding part of the book discusses the principal ways in which Marx's standpoint can be compared and contrasted with the other two authors, showing that some of the conventional views on this matter are misconceived."@en ;
