Synopsis

The Social Thought of C. Wright Mills by A. Javier Trevino

This book closely examines the writings of C. Wright Mills and his intrepid, if somewhat solitary, effort at influencing critical thought. In stressing the critical aspect of Mills's sociology, the book will focus generally on two of his lifelong intellectual concerns: (1) the interrelationship between social structure and personality, and (2) the bureaucratization of modern society and the power relations it produces. The purpose of this book is to acquaint the rising generation of interested publics - students, academics, activists, intellectuals - with the social and political thought of one of the leading critics of the mid-twentieth century. Ideas that, over half a century later, remain crucial in better understanding the world of the early twenty-first century.
