Anthony Giddens: Capitalism and Social Modern Theory
Sociology began as an attempt to make sense of the great transformation from traditional to modern society; the development of industrial production, the mass movement of people from the land to the towns and the rise of a new economic order, modern capitalism. Tony Giddens talks about how he conceived the project (lying on a beach in California), why he chose Marx, Durkheim and Weber and why he centred the work on the genesis and consequence of capitalist society.
