Community and Society
One of the first major studies of sociology, this book explores the clash between small-scale neighborhood-based communities and the large-scale competitive market society. It considers all aspects of life — political, economic, legal, family, religion and culture. Discusses construction of "selfhood" and "personhood," and modes of cognition, language, and understanding.
