Abstract The text deals with four Polish sociological textbooks published in the early 1960’s, written by two Marxists, Zygmunt Bauman and Jerzy J. Wiatr, and one by non-Marxist scholar, Jan Szczepański. Books of Wiatr and Szczepański were extremely long-lived, as they were being used until the end of Communism. The design of the last-named two resembled the pre-war systematic sociology textbooks, but all four works were theory-based, treatise-like textbooks. All the books were more influenced by post-war American social science than by any other, including domestic sociological tradition, but no sign of any discontinuity in the discipline’s development appeared in their texts. The Marxism of the Wiatr’s and Bauman’s works conformed to Western sociology as well as the non-Marxist sociology of Szczepański.
