Sinopsis:

This groundbreaking new introduction to sociology is an innovative hybrid textbook and reader. Combining seminal scholarly works, contextual narrative and in-text didactic materials, it presents a rich, layered and comprehensive introduction to the discipline. Its unique approach will help inspire a creative, critical, and analytically sophisticated sociological imagination, making sense of society and the many small and large problems it poses.

From the Back Cover:

“ ... an engaging and clearly organised book that will be indispensable to students and teachers of sociology alike. It contains an excellent mixture of readings and commentary and manages to do justice to some difficult and demanding ideas without sacrificing clarity and accessibility.”

Gary Hazeldine, Birmingham City University

 

“This highly readable text is distinctive for the skill and enthusiasm with which it introduces the subject. It should be an indispensable guide to the theory and practice of the discipline, not as a dry science but as a vital enterprise of imagination, intellectual rigour and serious scholarship.”

Liz Bradbury, Anglia Ruskin University

 

'...the world today is a strikingly small place, in which our lives are connected to those of others both close and distant ... and shaped by powerful social forces, which sometimes place us in highly unequal relationships with others. The study of these social forces is the subject matter of sociology.'
