Review:

"Excellent, got me to university and through it … It was an easy read, explained the concepts in very simple terms and illustrated debate with clarity, whilst remaining a readable reference book … it was so good that I loaned my copy out and it was never returned…"
Review by an Access student on Amazon.co.uk

"This book has been of great help to me during my first year at Greenwich University where I am studying a B.A. in Childhood Studies, especially the chapters on the family and education. I will be buying the new edition of this soon. It is definitely worth the money."
Review by an undergraduate student on Amazon.co.uk

"Continuing in the tradition of the 'blue bible', this book is so excellent simply because it is so comprehensive. An excellent all-round summary of sociology."
Review by Mark Kirby, AS/A-level teacher and author, on Amazon.co.uk

From the Author:

Broader coverage of key developments in the subject
This new edition extends the coverage of sociology to include both new topics and new approaches. The new chapters on culture and identity and on the mass media take full account of the 'cultural turn' in the subject. Increasingly influential concepts and approaches such as postmodernism, the sociology of modernity and globalization are integrated into existing chapters as well. Other improvements include comprehensive referencing and a two-colour format. Readers are welcome to contact me by e.mail with any queries or comments.

Martin Holborn.
