Review:

'...a fine acheivement that will suit first year undergraduates admirably.'  Times Higher Education Supplement

From the Back Cover:

Building upon the success of previous editions, this fully revised third edition of Sociology: Making sense of society lays the foundations for a theoretically and methodologically robust understanding of the subject area. Key topics are examined in an accessible and rigorous manner, encouraging reflection within a wide social, cultural and historical context.

Topical, stimulating and relevant examples from across the world help apply the analysis. A carefully crafted structure immerses students first in sociological thinking, history, method and practice before taking them into the main divisions and institutions in society. It also encourages them actively to participate in the understanding of sociology.
