"Giddens is the monarch of the introductory-text glen, and this handsomely updated seventh edition is a worthy successor." Timer Higher Education Selected endorsements for previous editions:
"With this new edition of Sociology, Anthony Giddens has done the seemingly impossible. He has lifted the best introductory text in sociology in the world to yet a further level of excellence. It is a great achievement." Ulrich Beck, The London School of Economics
"There's no one on the planet with such a refined grasp of the practical and political significance of sociology as Anthony Giddens. This new edition of his best-selling textbook is his best yet." Anthony Elliott, University of Kent at CanterburyFrom the Publisher:
The seventh edition of this indispensable resource continues from strength to strength to provide a vibrant, engaging and authoritative introduction to sociology.
Revised and updated throughout, it provides a commanding overview of recent global developments and new ideas in sociology. Classic debates are also given careful coverage, with even the most complex ideas explained in an engaging way.
Written in a fluent, easy-to-follow style, the book manages to be intellectually rigorous but still very accessible. With a strong focus on interactive pedagogy, it aims to engage and excite readers, helping them to see the value of thinking sociologically.
The seventh edition includes: * substantive new and improved material on the global financial crisis, recent social unrest (from student protests and austerity riots to the Arab Spring), the environment, new media technologies, feminist social theory, intersectionality and shifting global power; * further revisions and updating in all the chapters; * a strong focus on global sociology, and the sociological imagination; * new fully developed end of chapter materials, inviting readers to engage with popular culture as well as original research articles to gather sociological insights; * specially chosen, eye-catching photographs, which capture the everyday drama of the social world; * all the quality pedagogical features from the previous edition, such as "Classic Studies" and "Global Society" boxes, and "Thinking Critically" reflection points.
A best-selling textbook for nearly 25 years, the seventh edition sets the standard for introductory sociology. Complete with regularly updated extensive supporting resources at www.politybooks.com/giddens, it is the ideal teaching text for first-year university and college courses, and will help to inspire a new generation of sociologists.
