The reader, in its third edition, offers a stimulating and wide-ranging set of readings for students approaching sociology for the first time. It will be an essential resource for anyone who wishes to engage with the scope of sociological thought today.
Essential Concepts in Sociology is a clear and jargon-free book that introduces a careful selection of essential concepts that have helped to shape sociology, and others that continue to do so. Organized in ten thematic sections, it offers a more detailed and contextually rich – yet still handily accessible – dictionary-style resource providing a reliable route map for a rapidly changing world.
