The Sociological Imagination

40th Anniversary Edition

C. Wright Mills
New Afterword by Todd Gitlin

  • Mills calls for is a sociological vision, a way of looking at the world that can see links between the apparently private problems of the individual and important social issues.
  • Leading sociologist Todd Gitlin brings this fortieth anniversary edition up to date with a lucid introduction in which he considers the ways social analysis has progressed since Mills first published his study in 1959
  • A classic in the field, this book still provides rich food for our imagination
