Reviews

"In the “Vorwort” to the eighth edition, Tönnies reflected on the fact that the book was almost 50 years old and he wondered whether it might still have “something to say to the world” (p. 115). In the 85 years since Tönnies wrote that, the book continues to have something to say. And, this fine edition of Gemeinschaft und Gesellschaft ensures it will continue to say something for the foreseeable future. We have had to wait a long time for this edition of one of the classics in sociology, but it has certainly been worth the wait."

"Bettina Clausen und Dieter Haselbach ist (...) ein Kunststück gelungen, das manche >Insider< der Tönnies-Forschung für nicht möglich gehalten haben: nämlich Gemeinschaft und Gesellschaft in einer höchst anspruchsvollen >(historisch-) kritischen< und doch sehr gut lesbaren Form zu edieren, welche für die zukünftige wissenschaftliche Auseinandersetzung mit diesem Werk von unschätzbarer Bedeutung ist."
