In this regard, Anthony Elliott and Larry Ray (Key Contemporary Social Theorists, 2003) talk about the ‘widespread sense of disillusionment with classical forms of social thought’ (namely, Marxism, Durkheimian and Weberianism) and about ‘a significant proliferation in new conceptual approaches’. In addition to this, sociologists have never been particularly respectful of the of intellectual knowledge as exemplified by the rigid disciplinary boundaries within academic institutions, and they are widely known for drawing on the works of non-sociologists.

American traditions of social theory are brought powerfully to life in treatments of intellectuals ranging from William James to Robert K. Merton, David Riesman to Randall Collins, and Patricia Hill Collins to Saskia Sassen.
