Whether you're first getting to grips with sociology, writing or researching an essay or coursework, or revising for exams, you'll find something here to help you. Sue Hemmings of the Open University, Eric Harrison of City University, and Phil Sutton formerly of Robert Gordon University have written a range of materials to support your studying, and help you make the most of using Giddens's Sociology. You'll find:
- Summaries of each chapter to help you find your way around the book, and work out whether it covers the kind of material you're looking for. You can also use these as revision aids, as they condense the key ideas in each chapter.
- Multiple choice quizzes to test your recollection of key facts and ideas.
- Assignment guides to show you how to get started when writing an essay, where to look for the right material, how to formulate an argument, and pitfalls to avoid.
- A browseable glossary which explains in brief the meaning of important sociological concepts.
- Internet links that take you quickly to useful websites, and stop you wasting time looking for information elsewhere on the web.
