This fourth edition of the well established The Penguin Dictionary of Sociology has been substantially revised to reflect the newest trends and challenges within a rapidly evolving discipline. Designed not just to give simple definitions, but to provide a general analysis of sociology and prescriptive information, it includes crucial and timely issues such as ageism, sexism, employment, globalization, risk society, the mass media, migration, and nationalism, as well as detailed coverage of:
-- popular culture
-- economic life
-- feminist theory
-- identity and subjectivity
