Rather than a work of theory itself, Explorations in Classical Sociological Theory: Seeing the Social World is an insightful work that invites students to think creatively, reflexively, and critically about their social worlds. Written in a conversational tone that lifts the veil of theoretical jargon, Explorations in Classical Sociological Theory introduces students to the major classical theorists, including Marx, Spencer, Durkheim, Weber, Simmel, Mead, Schutz, Gilman, and Du Bois. This text focuses on the individual perspective of each theorist rather than schools of thought, and uses the provocative ideas of modernity and postmodernity to help students understand how the theoretical, historical perspectives apply to their own time period.

In this energetic new study, Wendy Mitchinson traces medical perspectives on the treatment of women in Canada in the first half of the twentieth century. It is based on in-depth research in a variety of archival sources, including Canadian medical journals, textbooks used in many of Canada’s medical faculties, popular health literature, patient case records, and hospital annual reports, as well as interviews with women who lived during the period. Each chapter examines events throughout a woman’s life cycle – puberty, menstruation, sexuality, marriage and motherhood – and the health problems connected to them – infertility, birth control and abortion, gynaecology, cancer, nervous disorders, and menopause. Mitchinson provides a sensitive understanding of the physician/patient relationship, the unease of many doctors about the bodies of their female patients, as well as overriding concerns about the relationship between female and male bodies. Throughout the book, Mitchinson takes care to examine the roles and agency of both patients and practitioners as diverse individuals.

إن ماركس وإنجلز ينشدان في الأيديولوجية الألمانية دراسة الإنسان الفعلي، الإنسان الحي، الإنسان في التاريخ. وإنهما ليؤكدان بلا كلل على فعالية الإنسان العملية الثورية، التي سوف تغير الإنسان نفسه من جراء تغيير الشروط الاجتماعية التي يحيا فيها.,إن وجود البشر الاجتماعي هو الذي يقرر وعيهم الاجتماعي؛ ولذا فإن الواجب يدعونا لأن نبدأ بدراسة الواقع الاجتماعي الحسي، دراسة «العلاقات التجريبية»؛ لأن هذه العلاقات هي التي تفسر تصوراتنا وأفكارنا، وليس العكس كما يحسب الأيديولوجيون الذين «تصبح الفكرة المجردة عندهم القوة المحركة للتاريخ، بحيث يرتد التاريخ إلى تاريخ الفلسفة»، أو إلى «مجرد عملية تطور الوعي».,وكونهما يرفضان هذا التصور، فإن ماركس وإنجلز يرسمان الخطوط الكبرى لتصور جديد للتاريخ، إنهما «يهبطان من السماء إلى الأرض»، وينطلقان في دراسة تاريخ البشر، ويستخلصان الفكرة الخصبة القائلة: إنّ المحرك الفعلي للتاريخ هو من دون الفكر إنتاج الحاجات الإنسانية.,إن جميع الثورات وما آلت إليه من عواقب تحددها شروط وجود الناس وحاجاتهم المادية؛ ومن هنا فإن العمل -العمل المنتج- وأشكال تقسيمه هي التي تشكل «مسرح التاريخ الحقيقي». ولما كانت حاجات البشر تتغير باستمرار وتتطور وتتعدد وتختلف من عصر إلى عصر، فإن هذه التبدلات هي التي تقوم في أصل التحولات الاجتماعية.,ولذا كانت بنية المجتمع وقفًا على نمط الإنتاج القائم تاريخيًّا، وإن كل نمط للإنتاج ينطوي على نمط معين للتعاون، وبالتالي على شكل معين للعلاقات الاجتماعية. وعلى العموم، فإن نمط الإنتاج مرتبط بطبيعة القوى الإنتاجية التي كوّنها وطورها التاريخ السابق للجنس البشري.
