Details

This is the only book-length intellectual treatment of sociologist Robert Nisbet (1913-1996), and it is written by one of the country's leading authorities on his life and work, Brad Lowell Stone. In this work, the debut volume of the new Library of Modern Thinkers series, Stone demonstrates that Nisbet anticipated much that is being said today by communitarians and civil society theorists. Nisbet's wide-ranging work and continuing relevance are thoughtfully examined in Stone's useful guide.
