Series: Big Ideas
Exploring more than 80 of the big ideas and key theories in the field of sociology in a clear and simple way, this is the perfect introduction to the study of how humans live and interact with each other. The Sociology Book offers a deep dive into a range of societal issues, ranging from government and gender identity to inequalities, globalization and even the Disneyfication of today's world.

New globalizing forces make our world increasingly interconnected. Similar issues affect us all- discover the tension between the needs of the individual and society, the changing workplace, and the role of everything from government to mass culture in our lives. To explain each concept, The Sociology Book makes each topic crystal clear using quirky graphics, pithy quotes, and step-by-step summaries. It defines terms such as liquid modernity and communitarianism , and explains the theories of seminal thinkers from Karl Marx and Auguste Comte to Sharon Zukin and Judith Butler.

Examaning everything from antisocial behaviour to how the middle classes monopolise the best jobs, The Sociology Book is an unmissable read for students and anyone interested in human behaviour.
