The ultimate sociological resource
Written by three eminent professors, this reference has been updated to reflect the shifts of sociological thought in the last five years, making it the most comprehensive, authoritative, and up-to-date dictionary of sociology available.
Written for students from school to university level, this reference provides not only simple, one-line definitions but also entries that discuss the issues involved in, and alternative approaches to, the central concepts, theories and writings of sociology.
