Publication Date 10 Aug 2011
OverviewFor use as a supplementary text in undergraduate courses in Sociology. The sixth edition continues to explore sociological concepts and debates on contemporary Australian and global social life with extracts from major newspapers, magazines and journals. It introduces students to the skill of reading 'between the lines' by bringing together snapshots of social life and key sociological concepts. While the most obvious aim of this book is to introduce students to the landscape of sociology, it has three other important aims: to assist students to think sociologically, conceptually and critically.
