The latest addition to the popular Sociology in Action series is the first A-level Sociology book to deal exclusively with Religion, an increasingly popular optional topic for students studying the AEB Sociology syllabus. Investigating Religion provides full coverage of the topic area, exploring it in more detail than other, more general, sociology textbooks. Looking at the role and relevance of religion in society, it explores the wider social context of a diverse range of religions and includes chapters on the decline of religion and the new religious and new age movements.

Review:

“ As sociology becomes increasingly complex ,it is difficult for teachers to find ways of making subjects simple without being simplistic. The Sociology in Action series, with its combination of a skills-based approach and up to date source material from academic research and journalism, is an excellent answer to this problem.”
Times Educational Supplement

From the Back Cover:

'Sociology in Action' is a well-established and highly regarded series for students of A level Sociology, Modern Studies Higher Grade, and first-year undergraduates. The series covers a broad range of titles, each of which provides a thorough investigation of its chosen topic.

With an emphasis on practical learning, each book in the series encourages active engagement with the subject, and the consideration of wider social contexts for each topic. Content is made accessible by applying theory to contemporary issues and to the student's own experience. With stimulating and up- to-date source material, practical activities in the form of questions, essays and suggestions for coursework and research, the 'Sociology in Action' series is an essential resource for the classroom, the library and the independent reader.

This latest addition to the 'Sociology in Action' series is the only A-level sociology textbook to deal exclusively with Religion, an increasingly popular optional topic for students studying the AQA (AEB) Sociology syllabus. 'Investigating Religion' provides full coverage of the topic area, exploring it in more detail than other, more general, sociology textbooks. Looking at the role and relevance of religion in society, it explores the wider social contexts of a diverse range of religions and includes chapters on the decline of religion and the new religious and new age movements.

"As sociology becomes increasingly complex, it is difficult for teachers to find ways of making subjects simple without being simplistic. The'Sociology in Action' series, with its combination of a skills-based approach and up-to-date source material from academic research and journalism, is an excellent answer to this problem."
'Times Educational Supplement'

"The 'Sociology in Action' series delivers on its aim of broadening syllabus coverage in a syllabus-relevant way and provides opportunities for teacher and students to approach sociology in an active and participatory manner."
'ATSS Journal'
