Description
This first volume in the new series Masters of Social Theory examines the work of Herbert Spencer. Jonathan Turner says of Spencer

′There are so many misconceptions about Spencer that someone needs to set the record straight...(this) is a book about what is still useful and interesting in Spencer′s sociology.′

Each volume in the series will feature prominent sociological theorists of the 19th and 20th centuries; they aim to provide both scholarly analysis and to summarize the fundamental ideas associated with each respective figure. The volumes provide a short, scholarly reference work and individual texts for undergraduate and graduate students. The series editor is Jonathan H Turner, Professor of Sociology, University of California, Riverside.

`Turner...has provided a convincing case for the importance of Spencer in contemporary theory... and gives a useful overview of (his) methods for comparative descriptive sociology.′ -- Network, No 33, October 1985

`Indispensable for historians of social theory, upper division undergraduate level and beyond.′ -- Choice, March 1986
