The new full-colour edition of this popular textbook has been updated to match the revised AQA exam specification, providing a fresh, interactive approach that is both visually appealing and accessible to all students. Written by a team of enthusiastic and experienced authors and senior examiners.
The book is divided into eight units:
• An introduction to sociology
• Families and households
• The mass media
• Wealth, welfare and poverty
• Research methods
• Preparing for the AS exam
Each unit is divided into a number of topics, organised in a consistent and easy-to-follow format. Each topic contains text to develop knowledge, but also equal amounts of activities and suggestions for research to develop the subject-specific and ‘key’ skills needed.

“Very user-friendly and immediately appealing with an excellent extract and questions section.”
Margaret P. Bateson, Head of Sociology at King Edward VI Grammar School
“It’s a book I can rely on…I especially like the annotated worked examples which can be used as a teaching aid.”
Steve Walker, Head of Socioogy at Willenhall Comprehensive
“If the content has changed little, what is the incentive to buy this revised edition? The answer lies not so much in the change to the main text, but the changes in style that make it a much more interactive and interesting text… I particularly liked the ‘Focus on Research’ boxes which outline a relevant piece pf recent research related to that sub-section.”
